After a North Carolina high school cheerleading squad was disciplined for displaying a pro-Trump banner, the school abruptly canceled Friday’s football game.
SCS has been notified of additional information that could compromise safety measures in place for sporting events. Upon receiving information, the NSHS football game scheduled for 9/20/19 is canceled. Safety is our first concern. https://t.co/jxIBaqzNjx pic.twitter.com/pChtIO0xMX

.@RepRichHudson is calling @NCHSAA decision to place North Stanly High School cheerleaders on probation, "unfair punishment." Members of the squad posed with a Trump 2020 re-election banner at a football game last month: https://t.co/HnYxF6IjF9 @ABC11_WTVD #ABC11 pic.twitter.com/QCIv1iozJF
