Donald Trump: NFL owners scared of players”

He also said that Trump's comments have unified players and owners, even those who supported Trump's campaign, saying he "created a whole lot more kneelers".

The NFL mothers didn't directly note the statement in their letter, but they did describe how their sons were trying to serve their communities and better the country.

Smith said he was "tired" of the national anthem protests and linking of arms in unity, adding he is ready to "get back to football".

Prince said, "I am all for respecting the flag and the soldiers that fought for it".

"To me this is something that has to change and when there's significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it's supposed to represent and this country represents people the way that its supposed to I'll stand", Kaepernick says. These notions are distractions from the main protest at hand, and is a tactic used to silence the voice of those fighting for justice in the country they call home. Teresa Kaepernick, the mother of the National Football League player who started the protest, responded: "Guess that makes me one proud b****!"

A group of mothers of NFL players have sent an open letter to President Trump asking him to put an end to his "divisive language", while defending the players who have protested during the national anthem in response to his comments. And right in the middle of it was owner and general manager Jerry Jones, who had previously come out against player demonstrations.

He said the protests are no longer about Kaepernick or protesting police brutality, but instead opposing Trump.

Eric Trump told Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity that locking arms during the national anthem doesn't show disrespect for the flag, but that kneeling was a step too far. Almost 62% of 9,056 respondents told us they plan to watch less pro football in response to the anthem controversy.

When asked what prompted his initial remarks in Alabama Friday, Trump claimed National Football League owners have personally complained to the president of being trapped in a "box" over how to handle the protests.

"The NFL can not disrespect our country. They say, 'we are in a situation where we have to do something, '" Trump said.
