Chargers Owner Dean Spanos Issues Statement After Trump's Attack on NFL Players

In the first of his Monday tweets, Trump referenced the stance of several owners at a NASCAR event held in New Hampshire. "I'm proud of our league". "Negative and disrespectful comments suggesting otherwise are contrary to the founding principles of our country, and we do not support those comments or opinions".

"Our game has long provided a powerful platform for dialogue and positive change in many communities throughout our nation", she said. "He's fired. He's fired", Trump said as he stood in front of a giant American flag at a campaign rally for Alabama senator Luther Strange. This has nothing to do with race or anything else.

President Trump took to Twitter - after teams were seen locking arms and kneeling at their respective games.

A number of players have been kneeling in protest against racial injustice and police brutality in the United States. "Believe me, I'm doing other things, but I watched a little bit, and I will say that there was tremendous solidarity for our flag and for our country. What the President is saying is, and I think, the owners should meet and they should vote on a rule".

Mike Tomlin, the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, announced they would remain in the locker room during the anthem.

Addressing two NFL players who appeared earlier with host Kate Bolduan, former Clinton White House aide Keith Boykin praised them for their explanations on why they took a knee on Sunday, before turning to what created the controversy that blew up over the weekend.

Football fans at Buffalo Wild Wings in Tuscaloosa were talking about the feud between the President and NFL players.

"Total disrespect of everything that we stand for", said President Trump.

"We fought for the very right for these people to express their views that's the whole point".

"Get that son of a (expletive) off the field right now", Trump said. "He's fired", Trump said to loud applause. And it leaves the country in a horrible place.
