Pressed on Monday about President Trump’s use of an clamour to report NFL players who lay or kneel during a inhabitant anthem, White House mouthpiece Sarah Sanders pronounced it’s “always appropriate” for a boss to urge a American flag.

It was a initial White House press lecture given Trump, during an Alabama convene Friday night, urged NFL owners to boot players who do not mount for a anthem to criticism military brutality.  “Wouldn’t we adore to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects a dwindle to say, ‘Get that son of a b—- off a field,'” Trump said. 

Sanders, when asked if a boss had left too far, replied, “I consider it’s always suitable for a boss of a United States to urge a flag, to urge a inhabitant anthem, and to urge a organisation and women who fought and died to urge it.”

Football players have given protested the president’s comments, and successive tweets in that he argued that a NFL should make players mount for a inhabitant anthem. Several players kneeled or sealed arms on Sunday, while 3 teams skipped a anthem all together. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, whose loyalty with Trump has stretched behind a decade, called Trump’s remarks “divisive.” 

“Look, this isn’t about a boss being opposite anyone,” Sanders said. “But this is about a boss and millions of Americans being for something, being for honoring a flag, honoring a inhabitant anthem and honoring a organisation and women who fought to urge it.”
