National Football League player responds to Trump's tweet

After President Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter about the NFL players who protested during the national anthem before Thursday's league-wide exhibition games, New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan slammed the president, calling him a "goober".

It's unclear how the NFL will actually handle national anthem protests this year. But after teams actually began instituting policies to fine players for kneeling, outrage led to the NFL suspending that policy and they're still working with the NFL Player's Association to determine the best course or action.

Mr. Trump, who triggered an uproar previous year after condemning players protesting social injustice, lashed out again after two Miami Dolphins players took a knee during a pre-season game on Thursday.

In a subsequent post 14 minutes later, Trump continued: "Be happy, be cool!" Most of that money goes to the players anyway.

On Tuesday, Bieber was snapped looking upset and crying during a bike ride in New York City with Baldwin, 21. It was then Bieber's turn to comfort his fiancée as he was seen stroking the model's face as she teared up.

"Rather than condemn the bigots or beliefs today, the president took aim at a protest, a small group of National Football League players calling attention to racial injustice and inequality last night".

"We entered into this partnership with the understanding that the Dolphins organization would require their players to stand for the national anthem".

The union has changed its tone since Dolphins Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson got down on one knee and Robert Quinn raised a fist in support during the anthem before Thursday night's pre-season game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Trump, Tapper noted, is "once again seeing a divided nation and doing the opposite of trying to bring us together" by "giving a presidential megaphone to one side in a controversial cultural issue that sometimes stokes racial tensions".
