President Donald Trump has wrapped up the week raising questions over his statements. On Friday September 22nd, Trump encouraged NFL owners to fire any player who protest during the national anthem. During a rally, President Trump told a crowd in Huntsville, AL to “get that son of a b—- off the field right now.”
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, say, ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now. Out, you’re fired!’ ”
Trump didn’t mention former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick by name, but many saw him as the President’s main target as he has mentioned Kapernick in previous speeches.

On Saturday, President Trump rescinded the invitation of Stephen Curry after he said the basketball star was “hesitating” to visit the White House.
Curry, a Golden State Warriors guard and two-time NBA MVP, said Friday he would vote against the team visiting Trump’s White House to celebrate the team’s 2017 championship.
“Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!” Trump tweeted at 8:45 a.m.
Not going to the White House would send a message, Curry told reporters, “that we don’t stand for basically what our president has — the things that he’s said and the things that he hasn’t said at the right times — that we won’t stand for it.”
