President Donald Trump joined Outkick founder Clay Travis on his Fox Sports Radio show this morning. Clay asked him about the return of the NFL around the 2:40-mark:

“Well they want to open and they want to open badly and they’ve been working with government,” President Trump said. “I would say this — if they don’t stand for the national anthem I hope they don’t open. But other than that I’d love to see them open and we’re doing everything possible to get them open. They can protest in other ways. I don’t think they should they should protest our flag or our country.”

“They know they my feelings very well,” President Trump said, after Clay asked him if he’s been in contact with NFL owners. “They’ve been expressed. I think it’s horrible for basketball ratings. They’re down to very, very low numbers. People are angry about it. They have enough politics with guys like me. They don’t need more as they’re going up for the shot. There was a nastiness about the NBA and the way it was done. I think the NBA’s in big trouble — bigger trouble than they understand.”
