Owners in the NFL are “f**king terrified” of President Trump, according to a new report.
From Bleacher Report:
“‘Our league,’ one team official said, ‘is f–king terrified of Trump. We’re scared of him.'”
Trump has been a critic of members of the league who kneel during the national anthem. Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick became infamous for the protests, but hasn’t played since the 2016 season.
In a Fox News interview this week, Trump said, “You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem.”
“You shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there,” Trump said of the kneelers. “Maybe they shouldn’t be in the country.”
“You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem and the NFL owners did the right thing with that if that’s what they’ve done.” (RELATED: President Trump Slaps NFL Kneelers — ‘Maybe They Shouldn’t Be In The Country’)
