RED ZONE: Trump Unloads on 'Disrespectful' NFL Over Protest Decision

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.08.17

The President’s comments come as the league continues to suffer severe ratings drops and low stadium attendance following weeks of player protests during the national anthem.

Last week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement saying all players should stand during the anthem, but has yet to release guidelines or rules that would discipline athletes who choose to “take a knee.”

Trump’s tweets are his latest attack on the NFL, and come just a day after Colin Kaepernick –the player who started the infamous protests- announced he would name Donald Trump as a key factor behind his inability to find a contract throughout the league.
