President Donald Trump just will not let go of his battle with the NFL.
The President continued to complain via Twitter about the NFL player protests early Friday morning, with his latest tweet using Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon as his target.
The President quote tweeted an individual who posted a story about Vernon “not being thankful” after he knelt for the national anthem before Thursday’s game against Washington.
“Can you believe the disrespect for our Country, our Flag, our Anthem continues without penalty to the players,” Trump wrote. “The Commissioner has lost control of the hemorrhaging league. Players are the boss!”
Vernon is among many NFL players who kneel during the national anthem as a way to protest police brutality and social injustice and the only Giants player to consistently do so.

Vernon, whose father is a retired Miami police officer, has been kneeling since Week 3 after Trump referred to a player who knelt as a “son of a bitch” during a speech in Alabama.
“I don’t care if you’re the president or not,” Vernon said at the time. “You ain’t my president.”
The league has had several discussions with players about social issues and work in the community since then, but has not made any rules to require players to stand for the national anthem.
SHARE this on Facebook and Twitter if you agree with President Trump that this player is a total disgrace to America!
