WH Spokeswoman: NFL Players Should Protest Police, Not The American Flag

NFL owners donated big money to Trump

"If they are upset about police brutality", she said of the players, then they should "protest the officers on the field that are protecting them instead of the American flag". I'm not sure how those two things would be combined, ' she explained. She also insisted Trump's remarks were in no way about race.

Asked about a rally in which Trump referred to black athletes protesting police brutality as "sons of bitches" who should be fired, Sanders clarified that the President is not "against" anything, especially not the first amendment or black people.

Trump said National Football League owners should "get that son of a b**** off the field right now" and tell him "he's fired" for 'disrespecting the flag'.

Sanders linking Trump's strong words to defending the flag and the anthem was at best an inappropriate conflation and, at worst, a deliberate deflection showing Sanders' complicity in his statements.

Sarah, when the - when Colin Kaepernick says that his protest is about fighting police brutality, fighting racial disparity, racial injustice, you're not taking him at his word. "This should be something that every American can get behind", Sanders said, pretending issue is "the flag".

"We certainly respect the rights that people have", Sanders said. Again, this isn't about the president being against something, which is what everyone wants to draw.

"This is about the president being for something".

Hundreds of football players kneeled during the national anthem at various Sunday football games. Others locking arms with owners in solidarity against in the president's remarks.

With devastation coming to Puerto Rico from natural disasters, an ongoing spat with North Korea looming, Republican health-care legislation in Congress, and more bubbling around Washington, the president appeared unfocused since he was giving plenty of oxygen to sports-related topics. "He's emphasizing something that should be unifying". It's something we should all celebrate; it's something that frankly should bring us together, not divide us.

When asked if Jared Kushner's emails from his private server would be released, Huckabee Sanders said that she did not have information regarding that issue.

A reporter asked for clarification. Also, how can the POTUS ignore the racial underpinnings of his tweets and of the players' demonstrations?

CNN's Jim Acosta went next and asked if the President is trying to wage a "culture war".

"When [Trump] tweets something, it does take away from his legislative agenda". Which was yet another attempt to reframe Trump's attacks as being patriotic. "The president's not talking about race".
