Trump laments increase in number of National Football League players bending the knee

Out in the cold Axios reported that Gen. Michael Flynn the ousted national security advisor won't get financial help for his legal fees from the Republican National Committee the Trump presidential campaign or the president himself Trump Promotes Book by Religious Adviser who said Protesting NFL Players are 'Lucky' They Have Not Been Shot

NFL-related tweets account for 12% of Trump's timeline over the past 30 days.

President Trump denounced the league Monday morning, tweeting that the players had showed "total disrespect to our Flag & Country".

In the latest round of fake patriotism, President Donald Trump and company are targeting NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem.

"I think our clubs all see this the same way - we want our players to stand, we're going to encourage them to stand and we're going to continue to work on these issues in the community", Goodell said Tuesday at a news conference following the Fall League Meeting in NY.

Goddell said last week that players "are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag, but they also understand how it's being interpreted, and we're dealing with those underlying issues".

Trump has mentioned the NFL in 18 different tweets since last month, but that figure doesn't tell the whole story - in addition to calling out the league by name, he also wrote about the value of standing for the flag and provided images of athletes doing so. That speech set off a firestorm and in the 30 days since, the topic has become Trump's second most common subject on Twitter.

While Trump's complaints about the National Football League have remained largely unchanged, he's made them in a number of different ways.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence released a petition last week demanding all players and fans stand for the anthem, requesting signatures from supporters, according to the GOP's website. "And those are our issues, national issues, American issues that are all important".

The Seahawks and 49ers had the most protesters on Sunday. The group eventually decided that the league would not implement a rule forcing players to stand.

"The president has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the national anthem".

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said he would bench any player on his team who takes a knee.
