Donald Trump Players Who Don't Stand Don't Belong In America!

Donald Trump Players Who Don't Stand Don't Belong In America!

Previously, the National Football League had no set policy on the anthem and some players each of the last two seasons had taken to either kneeling or sitting.

Kilmeade wondered if Trump would take credit for pushing "the story" forward.

Last autumn in Alabama, Mr Trump called on protesting players to be fired.

"I don't think people should be staying in locker rooms. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem and the NFL owners did the right thing". Or you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there. "Maybe they shouldn't be in the country", Trump said.

After a season filled with controversy over players protesting peacefully by locking arms, kneeling or skipping the national anthem on the field, Trump lauded the NFL's decision to fine teams for players who might choose to continue their dissent this season. Goodell said the league unanimously agreed to the vote, though San Francisco 49ers Jed York was the only owner who abstained.

"I think we've got to get this issue resolved before the season so that everyone is on the same page, " Wright said. "I brought it out".

"I have so many friends that are owners", Trump told Fox News in September. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News. "We have very smart people". "It would have been a lot easier". "The NFL owners did the right thing, if that's what they've done". CEO Christopher Johnson told Newsday.

"I never want to put restrictions on the speech of our players", he said. We are honored to work with our players to drive progress.

Despite the Trump administration's celebrations on Twitter, however, the rule may not be the end of kneeling protests.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long, who donated his base salary a year ago to various educational charities, ripped the announcement on Twitter.

"This is fear of a diminished bottom line", wrote Chris Long.

The president also defended his decision to fire Comey last May, calling him a "rotten apple". Don't get it confused.

"The efforts by many of our players sparked awareness and action around issues of social justice that must be addressed". Also, how the fans will react, how the media will react.
