Over the weekend Trump made comments about NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem. Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired’?”

Actor and activist Jesse Williams during an interview according to Huffington Post spoke out about the comments Trump made and said he was, “ A very horrible, a guy who thinks he’s a dictator, who treats America like it’s a game show. It’s also important to realize this anthem thing is a scam.” Williams shared his thoughts on the real reason about what’s happening with the National Anthem.


He said, “This is not actually part of football. This was invented in 2009 from the government paying the NFL to market military recruitment to get more people to go off and fight wars to die.” Williams believes this is a marketing and “paid patriotism” and spoke about how there is a $12 million contract between the Defense Department and sports teams.
