Thursday's poll was conducted from May 31 to June 5, partially after President Donald Trump announced that he was canceling a planned White House visit by the Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles.

"Athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the executive branch of our government", reads the grievance.

He has led the movement of players kneeling during the national anthem.

According to Yahoo, Kaepernick's legal team will have to convince the system arbitrator overseeing the grievance case that Trump, Pence and others' testimony would be relevant and make an impact on the case. "But that appears to be the next avenue of pursuit for Kaepernick's legal team, in a case that has only seemed to gain more traction with each passing month". They have the option to remain in the locker room for the anthem if they choose.

Trump said the protests, thus far, have been all "talk", but he wants players to recommend people he should pardon that have been treated unfairly by the justice system. The president used the occasion to again blast protesting players who past year did not stand for the anthem.

Nizami was the first to break the news about Imran's marriage to Reham, even when it was officially kept secret for two months. This constituted a violation of Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution, she was quoted as saying by the Pakistani media.

Kaepernick hasn't played in the National Football League since January 1, 2017.

None of the Eagles kneeled during the national anthem.

"Tell everybody, you can't win this one", Jones recalled Trump saying. Under the new rules, if players take a knee during the "Star-Spangled Banner", their teams will be fined.

Though Trump offered to hear from players, he did so after expressing his opinion on players who have used the playing of the national anthem as the window to protest perceived mistreatment of people of color by police. "Maybe you shouldn't be in the country", Trump said in an interview on Fox News on May 24. The vast majority of cases of racial inequality that have drawn protests have been at the state level regarding local police officers' treatment of minorities. Reid and other NFL players continued the protests last season while Kaepernick was out of the league. Reid has been unsigned as a free agent this offseason. But the lawyers for Kaepernick and Reid must provide evidence that such collusion took place.

"In one way, it's easier and people find it fascinating", Trump said of pardoning celebrities.
