It did not go unnoticed on Twitter Saturday morning that president Donald Trump was quick to congratulate a white football player who was selected second in the NFL pro draft -- while ignoring the black player who was drafted first after winning the Heisman Trophy.

On Saturday Trump skipped over Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, selected first by the Arizona Cardinals, to heap praise on Ohio State's Nick Bosa who has been a critic of former 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick -- who Trump loathes over his kneeling protests.

Trump tweeted, "Congratulations to Nick Bosa on being picked number two in the NFL Draft. You will be a great player for years to come, maybe one of the best. Big Talent! San Francisco will embrace you but most importantly, always stay true to yourself. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Twitter users were quick to point out Trump's omission of Murray and to point out that Bosa has a history of promoting white nationalist Twitter accounts.
