CNN media critic and "Reliable Sources" host Brian Stelter said on Sunday that President Donald Trump's controversial remarks from an Alabama rally on Sunday have only served to galvanize the world of professional sports against him.


"I was talking to an NFL source this afternoon," said Stelter, "who said, 'If President Trump thought he could divide the NFL, he was wrong."

Sunday has seen players and team owners linking arms in support and solidarity to protest U.S. police brutality.

"It's the opposite of what Trump was talking about on Friday night," Stelter said.
