The White House continues to ignore the initial issue for NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem; police killing of African-Americans. However, the White House supports a push for the NFL to make it mandatory for all team members to stand during the playing of the anthem.
Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!
