Donald Trump: NFL did 'right thing' with anthem policy

Trump lauds NFL as anthem rule raises more questions

During The View discussion on the new National Football League anthem policy, McCain said she would "never be OK" with disrespect toward the American flag. "It's kind of ironic to me that the President of the United States is contradicting what our country is really built on".

The civil rights organization National Action Network said it was planning a rally with community leaders and clergy to take place on Friday outside NFL headquarters in New York City.

The Steelers were at the center of the anthem controversy a year ago during Week 3 in Chicago when the players decided en masse to wait inside the tunnel leading to Soldier Field while the anthem was played. But for him to say anybody who doesn't follow his viewpoints or his constituents viewpoints should be kicked out of the country is not very empathetic.

After the NFL banned players from taking a knee during the national anthem, major sponsors of the league are facing calls to pull their support.

"I think that's good", Trump said in an interview with "Fox & Friends" that taped Wednesday and aired Thursday.

"I don't expect it to be an issue with this team with the leadership we have on this team and the communication we have in this building", he said. When they do wrong things, I'm going to let them know they're doing wrong things. Players can stay in the locker room during the anthem if they choose.

Even when her cohosts brought up First Amendment concerns and accused the NFL of sending a message to players that "now in America, you are not allowed to disagree", McCain, was quick to shoot back that the league as a company can set such rules.

"We are trying to stand for something, but you single us out in front of everybody?"

Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, who knelt during the anthem before several games during the 2016 season and once last season, called Trump's words "disgusting".

"It's inflamed this whole situation that we as players thought was calming down", he said.

The NFL Players" Association responded with a statement saying "the NFL chose not to consult the union in the development of this new "policy'". "I think that's the difference between patriotism and nationalism". "I wish that our president can come and see what it really takes to unify a team, a nation, a group of people together". Those teams also will have the option to fine any team personnel, including players, for the infraction. They're protesting excessive police violence and racial inequality.
