US president Donald Trump, interviewed by Fox and Friends, has lashed out at NBA players’ decision to protest racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem.
“I think it’s disgraceful,” Trump said. “We work with (the NBA), we worked with them very hard trying to get open. I was pushing for them to get open. Then I see everybody kneeling during the anthem. That’s not acceptable to me. When I see them kneeling during the game, I just turn off the game. I have no interest in the game. Let me tell you this, plenty of other people out there, too”.
