Donald Trump continued his assault on the NFL and their players and told reporters "in my opinion the NFL has to change or you know what's going to happen? Their business is gonna go to hell."
Earlier today a reporter asked Trump outside the White House why does he approve of white nationalists protesting in Charlottesville, but not NFL players.
"Why doesn't Colin Kaepernick have his First Amendment right?"
Trump replied, "I think the NFL is in a box. A really bad box."
Trump said their ratings are terrible except for their pregame shows.
"You cannot have people disrespecting our National Anthem,our flag, our country and that's what they're doing," the president said.
He continued, "In my opinion the NFL has to change or you know what's going to happen? Their business is gonna go to hell."
After a reporter asked Trump whether he "upholds the First amendment," Trump came back and repeated his earlier remarks, which weren't an answer to the question.
"No, not all. We have to respect our National Anthem, we have to respect our country and they're not respecting our country."
After saying that the fans mostly agree with him, he said again. "We have to show total respect to National Anthem, to our flag, for our country, we have to do it."
Trump will never answer the First Amendment question because he's in violation of it so he'll keep repeating the same mantra over and over again.
