President Trump addressed the media on Sunday after he was asked if his comments were inflaming racial tensions. "That's part of what makes America great". It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem.
He continued to tweet and talk about the protests through the weekend.
"Our game has long provided a powerful platform for dialogue and positive change in many communities throughout our nation", she said.
"Your eyes translate to advertising money for the League and it's owners".

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you'd say, 'Get that son of a b*#&h off the field right now. Out!" According to Cuban, Trump needs to be able to listen and take the criticism without immediately going on the defensive. "I want that guy to be one of the smarter guys in the room and it seems like every time he's opening up his mouth it's something that is dividing our country and not pulling us together'".
