President Donald Trump says if the NFL allows players to take a knee during the national anthem his days of watching football are over!
Trump made the threat in a tweet that initially took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Fauci warned America that a second wave of COVID-19 could impact pro sports.
"It would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall," Fauci said. "If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year."
The President then Tweeted.
"Tony Fauci has nothing to do with NFL Football," Trump said ... "They are planning a very safe and controlled opening."
"However, if they don’t stand for our National Anthem and our Great American Flag, I won’t be watching!!!"
The NFL's stance differs when NFL Commish Roger Goodell put out a video admitting the league bungled the way it handled NFL kneelers in the past and vowed to be more tolerant of nonviolent protesters in the future.
