NFL player responds to Trump's tweet: 'What a goober'

Saints linebacker Cam Jordan responded to President Donald Trump's criticism of NFL players protesting during the national anthem with three tweets.

Moments earlier, Jordan retweeted and commented on one of Trump's tweets, which called for NFL players who don't stand for the national anthem to be suspended without pay, wondering why Trump chose to speak out about national anthem protests instead of the second "Unite the Right" rally being held in the nation's capital this weekend. But after teams actually began instituting policies to fine players for kneeling, outrage led to the NFL suspending that policy and they're still working with the NFL Player's Association to determine the best course or action.

The NFL and its player's union have been working to resolve a complaint filed in court in July about the new policy forcing players to stand for the anthem.

"It would take a lot, but I think a good first step for us as a league would be acknowledging what they're doing to Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid", Stills said, via Pro Football Talk. "Among several players who protested during Thursday's games included Malcolm Jenkins, who raised a fist during the anthem". Stills said he and Wilson didn't coordinate their decision to kneel. President Donald Trump and others have criticized the players, saying their protests are unpatriotic and disrespect the military.

"We entered into this partnership with the understanding that the Dolphins organization would require their players to stand for the national anthem".

"Before we enjoy this game let's take some time to ponder that more than 60 per cent of the prison population are people of colour", he tweeted ahead of the game.
