Donald Trump’s latest attack on the NFL is just one of many that has the owners of the league defending him.
The president is claiming the league “is owned by the Democrats” and he wants them to take over the league.
Trump said in a tweet Friday morning that NFL owners should “be ashamed of themselves” for not protecting the players.
“NFL owners are owned by Democrats,” Trump tweeted.
“NFL owners should be ashamed of their own country.
The NFL should be sold to the highest bidder.
It is the NFL that is owned by Dems, and its owners should pay more taxes to the Democrats than it does to the NFL.”
The president made the comments during an appearance on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” which was taped earlier this month.
In a subsequent interview with the network, Trump said the league is owned in large part by Democrats.
“They don’t want to pay their fair share of taxes and they want to give more money to the DNC, so they don’t pay their taxes,” Trump said.
“I think that’s what they do. “
“When you look at it, the Democrats control the NFL. “
So I think that the owners should give the Democrats the right to take it over. “
When you look at it, the Democrats control the NFL.
I think it will be very difficult. “
But I think its going to be very tough to do.
And if the NFL wants to go to the Democrat controlled Congress, it should be very hard for the owners to get anything passed.””
The owners should have the right of vetoing any deal that they make.
And if the NFL wants to go to the Democrat controlled Congress, it should be very hard for the owners to get anything passed.”
The NFL owners were not immediately available for comment Friday morning.
The league and the players union were in dispute earlier this week over the NFL’s planned salary cap for next season.
Trump has long called for the league to be sold.
