Trump Defends His NFL Comments, You Won’t Believe What He Tells Protesters

Standing tall in the face of a wall of critics, President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to make sure the world knew he meant what he said Friday night when he denounced NFL players who use the playing of the national anthem as a time for protests.

“If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!” Trump tweeted.

Trump earned the ire of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for comments he made Friday night during a rally in Huntsville, Alabama.

Trump had said that if players want to use their freedom to protest, fans should use their freedom to walk out.

He also shared his dream for what would happen to athletes who politest during the national anthem

‘Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now! Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!”‘ Trump said Friday, while noting that failure to stand for the anthem is “a total disrespect of our heritage.”

“That’s a total disrespect of everything that we stand for,” he added.

But Goodell said it was Trump who committed the disrespect.

“Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL,” he said in a statement. Many players also fired back at Trump on social media.

However, Trump was also supported by many on Twitter.

Trump’s comments were not likely to fade away. The Buffalo Bills were planning a team meeting on Saturday night to discuss them.

However, even if the players are mad at Trump, much of America is against the protests.

A Yahoo Sports poll taken this month found that only 30 percent of Americans support players who kneel or otherwise refuse to stand for the national anthem as a form of protest. According to Yahoo Sports, support for the protests peaked at 33 percent in October 2016.
