During a press conference in the Rose Garden, POTUS responds to a question about remarks made by his 2016 election opponent, Hillary Clinton, in which she expressed support for the NFL players’ protest. POTUS repeated his previous remarks that those who knelt or remained seated during the anthem should be suspended, and that such acts are a sign of disrespect to the country. POTUS also contended that the NFL’s lower ratings and attendance were a direct result of the NFL protests and fans’ anger related thereto. Finally POTUS asserted that Clinton’s judgment as reflected by her protest remarks is why she lost the election. SI.com.
