Trump then also took to Twitter, saying that he had asked Pence to walk out of the stadium if the game saw any anthem protests.

In a letter obtained by ESPN, Roger Goodell wrote, "Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem".

President Donald Trump called for changes to U.S. tax law affecting the National Football League, fuelling a feud with the league and its players over protests that he says disrespect the nation.

Questioned about Trump's apparent error on the NFL's tax status, she said: "The federal tax law doesn't apply here, but certainly we know that they receive tax subsidies on a variety of different levels". Hours later, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones suggested that players who are "disrespectful" to the American flag should not be allowed to play.

Before making those comments, Smith called the National Football League out for their weak response to Trump and said they need to address him directly because he successfully hijacked the issue from its players. "There has been no change in the current policy regarding the anthem.

Everyone who is part of our National Football League community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military, and we are coming together to deal with these issues in a civil and constructive way". Commissioner Roger Goodell released a letter saying the league's position is that "everyone should stand".

"The real dialogue and the real issues have been overtaken by the controversy", Goodell told NFL Network. "We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players". "The NFL is doing the hard work of trying to move from protest to progress, working to bring people together".

Kaepernick started the kneeling movement past year when he played for the San Francisco 49ers, refusing to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police.

However, Trump's latest comments are not the first time he has weighed in on the issue.

"I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen", added Trump. And frankly the National Football League should have suspended him for one game and he would have never done it again.
