Update 4: In the latest escalation in his feud with the NFL, Trump just (re)blasted Commission Roger Goodell in a tweet, saying he was trying to “justify” the actions of players who don’t stand for the National Anthem. His tweet was sent in response to a statement Goodell released earlier today criticizing Trump for “disrespecting” NFL owners by suggesting they fire players for protesting.
Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand!
