A defiant President Trump said Sunday afternoon that the outrage over NFL players kneeling during the national anthem “has nothing to do with race,” but rather is about “respect for our country.”
Speaking on the tarmac in New Jersey before boarding Air Force One, Trump doubled down on his comments about the NFL and its players.
“This has nothing to do with race. I never said anything about race,” Trump said. “This has to do with respect for our country and respect for our flag.”
When asked if players who kneeled today should be fired as he suggested earlier, the president said, “I think the owners should do something about it. It’s very disrespectful to our flag and our country.”
