In the NFL review of the President called “inaccurate”
The US President Donald trump said Wednesday that the Commissioner of the National football League Roger Goodell decided to support his call to all the players stand up during the national anthem. NFL called that statement “inaccurate”.
“It’s time: Roger Goodell of the NFL finally demanded that all the players stand up during the singing of our great National anthem. Respect our country,” wrote trump on Twitter.
However, the NFL is clearly responding to the tweet trump, issued a statement in which he called his review is inaccurate.
“Heard this morning a comment about the position of the Commission in respect of the hymn inaccurate. As we said yesterday, next week will discuss these issues with the owners of the teams,” the statement said.
“The NFL is making great efforts to move from protest to progress, to bring people together,” said League. It is also reported that on Tuesday, Goodell met with players of the Miami Dolphins, law enforcement and community leaders to personally witness the “incredible work done by our players and clubs to strengthen their communities.”
The owners of the teams and players of the League will meet next week in new York to decide what to do with the protest gestures before the start of matches.
Tramp for some time waging verbal war against more than 200 NFL players, mostly African Americans, who in recent games was down on one knee during a performance of the national anthem to protest against racism in the United States and discrimination of minorities by law enforcement.
