Trump: Objection to NFL anthem boycotts ‘has nothing to do with race’

MORRISTOWN, New Jersey — President Donald Trump says his objection to NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality "has nothing to do with race."

Instead, Trump says it has to do with "respect for our country and respect for our flag."

The president made these comments during an impromptu news conference as he boarded Air Force One to return to the nation's capital. Trump says "our soldiers, our first responders" should be treated with respect.

Trump said Friday at a rally in Alabama that NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the anthem.

NFL players and owners around the league condemned his statement, and more than a hundred players sat, knelt or raised their fists in defiance.

But Trump reiterated Sunday NFL owners "should do something" about the protests.

Dolphins players wear shirts supporting Kaepernick during pregame warmups

East Rutherford, NJ -- A handful of Miami Dolphins players are wearing black T-shirts supporting free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick during pregame warm-ups.

The shirts have "#IMWITHKAP" written in bold white lettering on the front.

Kaepernick was the first athlete to refuse to stand during the national anthem as a protest. This season, no team has signed him, and some supporters believe NFL owners are avoiding him because of the controversy.

Among the players sporting the shirts before their game against the New York Jets are wide receiver Kenny Stills, running back Jay Ajayi and offensive linemen Laremy Tunsil and Ja'Wuan James. Stills, also a team captain, posted a photo on Twitter of himself wearing the shirt, along with the post: "In case you didn't know!"
