In response, National Football League players and even some team owners across the country knelt or linked arms during the anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality.

The irony of Trump's ceaseless attacks on the National Football League is that rather than make life harder on ownership, he provided them an opening.

I think that these people have a right to protest however, I don't think that time should be during the anthem.

The Cowboys have yet to decide if they will continue their dual display of unity against racism and respect for the flag when the host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

"I have so many friends that are owners and they're in a box", Trump told Fox News. "What I learned from Coach Eddie Robinson was that if there is no flag, you stand for the Anthem". Take the poll below and let us know.

Some 53% of Americans also do not think it is appropriate for the President to comment on how the NFL and its players should conduct themselves during the national anthem. Not because owners are "afraid" of players, but because they know their success has more to do with the men on the field than the guy in the White House. "Those statements are not accurate", the NFL's chief spokesman, Joe Lockhart, said in a conference call with reporters.

The statement reflected a "common vision for human exploration", Nasa said, as it worked on its " deep space gateway " concept. The official was speaking on the sidelines of the International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide, Australia on Wednesday.

"The NFL can not disrespect our country, they can not disrespect our flag or our national anthem", Trump tells "Fox & Friends" Thursday, Sept. 28.

"You can not have people disrespecting our national anthem, our flag, our country, and that's what they're doing". The Pittsburgh Steelers - with the exception of offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva - the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans all stayed in the locker room during the anthem.

As a daughter of somebody who is now in the military, it really upsets me that people have resorted to disrespecting the flag by not at least standing up for it. Despite his unemployment, athletes have continued to join in on the protests. "And they've got to be tough and they've got to be smart because you look at their ratings are going way down".

"It saddens the organization to know that President Donald Trump would make our sons - as well as their mothers - the target of inflammatory, offensive comments that are meant to promote anger and hatred, depleting them of their heritage and self-identity".

CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill responded to those who considered the protest unpatriotic by saying, "You don't get to define patriotism for everybody else".
