Trump Continues to Slam the NFL for Allowing Anti-Cop Players to Disrespect Flag and Country

NFL players should respect the American flag and our national anthem!

President Donald Trump blasted NFL players who protested the national anthem and criticized some in the league Friday night at a rally for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange.

The president said that team owners should fire players for taking a knee and added that if fans would “leave the stadium” when players did so, “I guarantee, things will stop.”

Trump said NFL owners should respond to the players by saying, “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired. He’s fired!” at which point the crowd went wild erupting into cheers chanting, “USA! USA! USA!”

President Trump is VERY pro-American and has high standards when it comes to being a patriot. He has made it very clear that the American flag and the national anthem should be held in the highest regard.

On Saturday the NFL Commissioner lectured President Trump rather than the players who have been kneeling during the national anthem.

The Hill reported:

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fired back at President Trump on Saturday for encouraging league owners to remove players who take a knee during the national anthem, saying Trump’s “divisive comments” show “an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.”

“The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture,” Goodell said in a statement. “There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters we’ve experienced over the last month.”

“Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.”

Now this…

President Trump continued to slam the NFL for allowing players to disrespect US flag and country, the GP reports.

President Trump: Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country. Tell them to stand! If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! …NFL attendance and ratings are WAY DOWN. Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love our country. League should back U.S.
