On Friday the President came up with new proposal for anthem protestors while speaking to reporters on the White House lawn.

The Kaepernick camp accuse Trump of breaking federal law by influencing NFL team owners not to sign Kaepernick after Trump called for NFL owners to fire players who kneeled during the national anthem before games.

Trump on Friday also said he was considering pardoning Muhammad Ali for refusing to be inducted into the draft for the Vietnam War.

But the scheduling of such testimony could require significant legal maneuvering if the depositions are opposed by the White House. The goal will be to prove that statements about anthem protests from Trump and his camp directly influenced Kaepernick's standing with the league.

Almost 60-percent of the respondents said the kneeling players were not unpatriotic compared to 35-percent who felt they were. You shouldn't go in a locker room when our national anthem is playing.

Grammy-winning rapper T.I. looks like he's ready to fully get behind a potential Joe Biden presidential run.

"We have a great country, you should stand for our national anthem", Trump said Friday.

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. "He's fired", he said in September at a campaign rally in Huntsville, Alabama. "Owners have described the Trump administration as causing paradigm shifts in their views toward National Football League players".

He also asked athletes who have friends and family that have been treated unfairly to let him know about those situations.

Thursday's poll was conducted from May 31 to June 5, partially after President Donald Trump announced that he was canceling a planned White House visit by the Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles. The attorneys would then have to present their argument to the collusion arbitrator overseeing the grievance, explaining why testimony from Trump, Pence or others in the administration is important to the collusion case.

Goodell said teams whose players and personnel do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem will be fined by the league.

Trump has proven that he's willing to hear people out and act accordingly, as he did when he granted clemency to Alice Marie Johnson after meeting with Kim Kardashian West.
