The NFL will pay a price for disrespecting the country that made them rich.In an interview aired Thursday morning on ‘Fox & Friends President Trump opened up again about the whole National Anthem fiasco. He said that NFL owners are “afraid of their players.”
Trump told Fox News: “I have so many friends that are owners and they’re in a box. I mean, I’ve spoken to a couple of them, and they say, ‘We are in a situation where we need to do something.’ I think they’re afraid of their players if you want to know the truth, and I think it’s disgraceful.”

He continued: “They’ve got to be tough and they’ve got to be smart.”
On Hegseth’s question why is NFL disrespecting the anthem such an important issue for him President Trump answered: “Well, it is an important issue. It’s not a distraction at all, because, you know, first of all, I’m doing a lot. As you know, we’ve passed over 50 pieces of legislation. We have a Supreme Court judge. We have a much stronger military. We have strong borders now. We’re going to get the wall. We’re going to get all the things that we said. And now we’re going, as you know, today is the big day. We’re announcing the biggest tax cuts in the history of our country.”
“So there’s been no distraction. But the NFL cannot disrespect our country. They cannot disrespect our flag or our national anthem. And they can’t have people sitting down or kneeling down during our national anthem.”
He continued: “Most people agree with me. And the NFL is in a box. They have to do something about it. They’re disrespecting — and when I say they, in a way, it is they, because they can stop it.
You know, they have rules for everything. You can’t dance in the end zone. You can’t wear the pink socks, relative to breast cancer, which is one of the places — they have rules for everything.
Why aren’t they honoring this country by enforcing a rule that’s been in existence for a long time?
So the NFL and the players really have to do the honor of the country. It’s for the honor of the country. They have to respect our country. They have to respect our flag and our anthem.”
I stand with President Trump. Disrespecting our flag and our anthem is not the way to protest nor the place to protest! We The People are pissed at the disrespect to our military and our country! If the NFL or owners had a backbone they could stop this insanity in its tracks by just a few rules.
Sadly, I don’t think the NFL is remembering who pays their salaries. With tickets and merchandise and the sponsors catering to their sales…. best keep customers happy.
