Kaepernick wants to subpoena President Trump

"Athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the executive branch of our government", reads the grievance.

And Kaepernick is coming with receipts that Trump did just that.

James, who has called the president a "bum" in the past, said Tuesday "no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite", which Curry agreed with. "This one lifts me". Star players Stephen Curry of the Warriors and LeBron James of the Cavaliers have been critical of Trump. He also suggested those who don't stand maybe "shouldn't be in the country".

"Your San Francisco quarterback, I'm sure nobody ever heard of him", the president said.

The goal of the subpoenas, according to the report, is to find out the involvement that Trump, Pence, and other officials had with the National Football League concerning player protests and Kaepernick's free agency. "Do you believe that?"

58 percent of American voters don't think players who protest racial injustice by kneeling during the anthem are unpatriotic.


In his testimony, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Trump spoke with him about the anthem. But I will tell you, you can not disrespect our country, our flag, our anthem.

Fox News fanned the flames by showing pictures of Eagles players kneeling in prayer - pictures that weren't taken during the performance of the national anthem - prompting player backlash and an official apology. "I mean, we'll see". "It's divisive and it's frightful". We've got enough grandstanders in this town. "These are real actions of intelligent athletes who have consciences who do what we always say we want athletes do - don't just make a bunch of money, don't go out there and hot dog it - be about something serious".

When asked about pardoning himself in the wake of the Russian Federation investigation, Trump acknowledged, "I'm not above the law" but added, "I do have an absolute right to pardon myself, but I'll never have to do it because I didn't do anything wrong". When that message changed, and everybody was interpreting it as that was the reason, then I was against the kneeling.

"I think we'll have the Caps", he said. Even so, the new policy has been criticized by many players and other observers who have accused the league and owners of capitulating to Trump, who said the new policy was the right thing for the NFL to do.

His tune had softened on Friday though, when he told reporters he understood why players were shunning the anthem.
