Trump suggests United States change tax law to punish National Football League for 'disrespecting' country

The act of kneeling before the flag and during the playing of our national anthem represents the highest form of respect, faithfulness and allegiance one can demonstrate. In a statement, Pence said he would not "dignify" an event that disrespected the military or United States flag.

President Donald Trump continued his crusade against NFL players making demonstrations during the national anthem, this time suggesting tax laws should change to hurt the league.

In another tweet, posted late on Monday evening, Trump had praised Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for stating that he would not tolerate kneeling while the Star-Spangled Banner plays before National Football League games. Vice President Mike Pence left the Indianapolis-San Francisco game this past Sunday in protest to players protesting during the national anthem. "As thousands have shown in the past, it takes bravery and courage to speak and confront these issues as our players have, especially when it is unpopular with some".

"If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play", Jones said after the Cowboys' loss to the Green Bay Packers.

"There is room for (NFL) management to do the same and maybe then players do not have to risk the taunts and threats alone". When the anthem was performed, they stood arm-in-arm with the players.

Before the Cowboys' game at Arizona on September 25, Jones and members of his family joined the players, coaches and staff on the field prior to the anthem. Jones said he was unaware of their actions.

One member of an National Football League coaching staff said the general manager asked the position coaches (who are often the lowest-ranked coaches but have the most contact with the players) to "feel out" which players might be thinking of taking a knee and to "talk to them". Trump said in a tweet later on Sunday evening that he had asked Pence to walk out if more protests occurred. Some owners are reportedly concerned with how national anthem protests may affect business. One NFL linebacker told The Root: "They didn't say what would happen". The practice has caught on since it was started by Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, at the start of the 2016-17 regular season in protest at police brutality against black people in the U.S.
