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.

According to Miller, Republicans are disseminating a narrative that says coronavirus restriction should be met with a sort of "organized resistance" from individuals and businesses that feel unfairly oppressed. While everyone wants to be with their families on Thanksgiving, "one thing that most people have learned by the time they are adults is that they don’t get to do whatever they want whenever they want."

Viewers of Fox & Friends were treated to a dose of the truth on Thursday when the show admitted that President Donald Trump has "baselessly" and "falsely" claimed that the 2020 election was rigged.

The message to Fox News viewers appeared on the network's ticker graphic that is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

"President Trump phoned into a meeting organized by Republicans in Pennsylvania Wed., baseless claiming that the election was 'rigged' and falsely claiming that he won it 'by a lot,'" the Fox News ticker reported. "Most of Trump's legal efforts to challenge voting procedures in PA, MI and other states have been thrown out and his campaign has not produced sufficient evidence to back up claims of widespread voter fraud."
