President Trump returned to Twitter regarding the backlash of his comments, demanding that NFL owners “fire or suspend” players who kneel during the national anthem, using a profane term to describe players who do. He also called for fans to boycott games if the form of protest continues.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now… he is fired’?”

Over the weekend, NFL players and coaches and even owners protested in solidarity the president’s comments. While some people took a knee, others crossed arms, and some totally stayed away from the conversation by remaining in the locker room while the national anthem played.

Meanwhile, some celebrities also joined the cause, Stevie Wonder, John Legend, Pharrell Williams, Cardi B, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Ice Cube all took a knee while performing over the weekend.

But the president has denied that his stance had anything to do with race but it’s about the respect of the country.

“It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!” Trump said in another tweet.
