Trump doesn’t care one iota about the kneeling as anything other than a means of petty revenge against the NFL for slighting him twice.
First when Trump was the main owner in the USFL which stupidly tried to compete directly with the NFL and failed. Then as it was getting ready to fold, Trump tried to get the NFL to expand and accept his New Jersey Generals team into the NFL and was again told no.
Then in 2012 he tried to buy the Buffalo Bills and was rebuffed by the league.
Trump is a bitter, petty old man with a grudge and his continuous stirring of the anthem pot is just his way of getting back at them. This was a DEAD issue last year with less than 5 players still kneeling league wide and no one paying attention but then President Cheetoh started tweeting and name calling to stir the pot and get players kneeling again. Now he sees blood in the water again so of course he’s opening his mouth again.
Who cares? It’s just his opinion, no different than mine or yours. None of us including him have any say in the matter. That’s between the NFL and NFLPA. But I don’t know why people continue to think that it’s somehow odd behavior that the President of the United States is against disrespecting the United States flag. A real stunner.
Hours after The Associated Press reported that Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the anthem could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week, the league and the players union issued a joint statement late Thursday night saying the two sides are talking things out.
I say the players have the upper hand here. Without them the owners do not have a product.
