Trump warns NFL protesters that citizenship is conditional: ‘Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country’

Published

on

President Donald Trump praised NFL owners for banning sideline protests of racism and police brutality — and suggested players who kneel should be removed from the country.

The president spoke one-on-one with “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade during an interview that aired Wednesday morning that mostly focused on immigration and border security, but Trump said owners had not gone far enough by allowing players to remain in the locker room during the national anthem.

“I don’t think people should be staying in locker rooms, but still I think it’s good — you have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there,” Trump said.

He went even further, and suggested that citizenship was conditional.

“Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country,” Trump said. “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, and the NFL owners have done the right thing, if that’s what they’ve done.”

Trump used similar language during the interview when he defended his description of immigrants who may be MS-13 gang members as “animals.”

“These are vicious killers and they shouldn’t be allowed into the country,” he told Kilmeade.

GOP looks like it’s in a ‘state of panic’ after labeling combat veteran a ‘socialist loser’ for running as a Democrat: columnist

Published

on

Republicans in Cincinnati, Ohio, may have overstepped the boundaries of poor taste, calling a former Air Force pilot a "socialist loser."

As columnist Jason Williams writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the GOP majorly flubbed their campaign against the Democrat.

"Yeesh, not a good look for the Trump Party," Williams writes. "Democrat Nikki Foster is neither a socialist nor a loser, from what little we know about the Mason moderate after she launched her campaign in Ohio's 1st Congressional District on Monday."

Pelosi slaps Trump with a backhanded compliment: ‘He’s a great distractor — that’s what this is about’

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of making a racist attack on four U.S. congresswomen to distract from failures in his administration.

At a press conference, Pelosi told the reporters that lawmakers were "gentle" in condemning only Trump's tweets as "racist" in a recent vote.

"We weren't saying he is racist," she explained. "We were saying that the words that he used were racist."

"We all know the argument that could be made against us in terms of our philosophy, in terms of our priorities and the rest," Pelosi said. "And the president knows there are arguments that could be made against him and, therefore, he wants to distract from them."
