While campaigning in Alabama for Senator Luther Strange, President Trump commented on the NFL players kneeling or sitting during the pre-game national anthem.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of the NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, to say, ‘get that son of bitch off the field right now! Out! He’s fired! Fired!’ You know, some owner’s going to do that. “He’s gonna’ say, ‘that guy who disrespects our flag, he’s fired!’ And that owner…. will be the most popular person in the country.”
And the crowd went wild!
