On Sunday President Trump sounded off on the NFL national anthem controversy.
On Sunday over two hundred NFL players and staff knelt down in protest during the national anthem.
President Trump: I think it’s very disrespectful to our country. I think it’s very, very disrespectful to our flag. We have a great country. We have great people representing our country especially our soldiers, our first responders and they should be treated with respect. And when you get on a knee and you don’t respect the American flag or anthem that’s not being treated with respect. It has nothing to do with race. I’ve never said anything about race. This has nothing to do with race or anything else. This has to with respect for our country and respect for our flag.
