The President of the United States
, Donald Trump, fired up the controversy that wasn't as a serious issue last season for fans or players as many player protested during the anthem. After Trump called his dogs on the players expressing their first amendment rights, NFL owners, players, and fans then made it a issue to talk about once again. Dallas Cowboys
owner, and friend of Trump, Jerry Jones
made it clear that any of players in the Dallas locker room choose to protest, they will not play. Jones states Sunday , "If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won't play." Of course, the President had a few words after learning of Jones' statement saying , "A big salute to Jerry Jones
, owner of the Dallas Cowboys
, who will BENCH players who disrespect our Flag."Stand for Anthem or sit for game!" I think the President should have much more important matters to handle than fighting with NFL players everyday.
