"I'm going to ask them to recommend to me people who were unfairly treated".
Trump has been highly critical of NFL players who have protested the fatal police shootings of unarmed black men and systemic inequities by kneeling during the playing of the national anthem at games. I understand that. I'm going to ask them to recommend to me people that were unfairly treated.
"I'm going to ask them to recommend to me people who were unfairly treated", Trump said at the White House Friday.
Trump also floated the idea of pardoning the late boxing legend Muhammad Ali, who was convicted for refusing to fight in Vietnam.
Earlier this week, the NBA's LeBron James said neither team competing in the league's championship series would visit the White house.
The exiled National Football League quarterback and his legal team plan to haul Donald Trump before the courts because the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback says he's going to prove that Trump broke the law by illegally using the office of the presidency to illegally influence private business dealings. "You shouldn't go in a locker room when our national anthem is played".
That said, it looks like they're going to try, and a amusing wrinkle here is that if Trump is forced to depose, he could make himself legally liable based on his testimony. "You should stand for our national anthem", he said.
Democrats appear to avoid lockouts in California primaries
Democrats fought to shape the political battlefield for a November "blue wave" Tuesday in primaries across eight states. Senator Roger Wicker , Republican of MS , won his primary contest as did Senator Bob Menendez, Democrat of New Jersey .
Kaepernick ignited a controversy back in 2016 when he refused to stand during the National Anthem, protesting what he believes are racial injustices and ongoing police brutality in the US.
Trump also said that while he had the "absolute power" to pardon himself in connection with the special counsel's probe into possible collusion between Russian Federation and his campaign, no crime had occurred.
He said he was delighted to be able to help the woman, who was not a famous or well-known person, and these are the people he will aim to pardon in future.
Now, all eyes are on the G7 summit as the world watches Trump meet with fellow global leaders after saying he thinks Russian Federation should be reinstated to the leading group of industrialized nations.
If Trump was calling player like Kaepernick "sons of bitches" in public, imagine what he was saying in private to the owners on those calls. "So I think that's really incumbent upon us to adopt that, because that's how I think the country is now interpreting the kneeling issue".
