On Tuesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell expressed his belief that everyone "should" stand for the national anthem but noted that the league would not institute a rule to force players to do so. Trump waded back into the anthem controversy with an early morning tweet after National Football League team owners and player representatives met in NY on Tuesday. However, recently, it's been his retweets that are speaking volumes about his feelings toward Goodell, as well as his approval of new community programs taking root.
"It is important for us to honor our flag and our country, and this is what the supporters expect from us", he recalled, noting that the players who protest in this way " don't do it to disrespect the flag ".
Goodell also said there were only "six or seven" players protesting. The demonstrations began previous year with former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been unable to find a new team after leaving the 49ers.

"We want our players to be standing and we will continue to encourage them to get up", he said, adding that the members of the meeting had not discussed any possible sanctions against players knelt.
The president has called the protests disrespectful, and has urged supporters to walk out of games when players kneel during the anthem. "We'll deal with these issues as they come up, but for right now, that's our focus".
