Trump: NFL players who don't stand during National Anthem maybe 'shouldn't be in the country'

"Well, I think that's good", Trump said of the policy shift during an appearance on "Fox & Friends" Thursday morning.

President Donald Trump speaks to the media before boarding the Marine One helicopter on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, May 23, 2018.

The move to mandate that players stand came after Trump repeatedly criticized athletes protesting issues including police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem. Any violations of the new rules would result in fines against teams.

After the NFL rule change, Trump took no credit for the league's rebuke of the player protests, saying, "this was not me".

This is related to the protests that occurred during the last season when some of the players knelt during the national anthem. Without full funding, Trump said, he will not sign off on any legislation aimed at preserving the Obama-era DACA program, which provided temporary legal status to thousands of people brought to the country illegally as minors.

'You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, and the NFL owners have done the right thing'.

Trump said the owners are "doing the right thing" on the issue, which he turned into a cause celebre a year ago with provocative comments at a rally and a barrage of tweets.

Trump's reaction was the president's first since NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Wednesday the league would fine teams and league personnel who do not "stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem". Trump said in the Fox interview that he thought "the people" pushed for the new policy. "But still, I think it's good", Trump beamed in the interview, taped previous afternoon while Trump attended an anti-immigration event in NY.

Trump fueled the controversy further during a rally in Alabama in September when he said, "Wouldn't you love to see one of the National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say "Get that son of a b-- off the field right now"?"

"The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this 'policy, ' the statement said". He drew condemnation from players and owners when he said during an Alabama campaign speech that owners should say "get that son of a bitch off the field" and fire those participating in the protest.
