Trump: NFL players who kneel ‘maybe shouldn’t be in the country’

Trump: NFL players who kneel ‘maybe shouldn’t be in the country’

President Donald Trump said in an interview with “Fox and Friends” that football players in the National Football League (NFL) who take a knee during the national anthem “maybe” should not be in the United States. >> Read more trending news  “I don’t think people should be staying in locker rooms. But still, I think it’s good,” Trump said in the interview with “Fox and Friends.” “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.”  Before the interview, the hosts of “Fox and Friends” said their conversation with Trump took place Wednesday, just minutes after the new NFL policy regarding players who kneel was publicly announced. >>Read: NFL owners approve new national anthem policy, will fine teams that allow players to kneel Trump told “Fox and Friends” that NFL owners “did the right thing.” In the interview with Fox, Trump took credit for creating the issue, but said “the people” were the ones who “pushed it forward.” The new NFL policy states that all players and officials on the field must stand during the national anthem, or choose to stay in the locker room while the song is played. Any team that allows players to kneel on the field could face fines. Controversy over NFL players who kneel during “The Star Spangled Banner” started in 2016, when former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand in order to protest police brutality against minorities.  The protests grew, prompting Trump to call the kneeling “disgraceful” in statements during a joint press conference with the Spanish prime minister in 2017.

Trump calls canceled summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un 'a setback for the world'

Trump calls canceled summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un 'a setback for the world'

President Donald Trump said Thursday that he remains open to meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, hours after he canceled their planned summit in Singapore in a letter released by White House officials.  >> Read more trending news “I believe that this is a tremendous setback for North Korea and, indeed, a setback for the world,” Trump said Thursday at a news conference. “I hope that Kim Jong Un will ultimately do what is right not only for himself, but perhaps most importantly what is right for his people, who are suffering greatly and needlessly.” He added that “our military ... is ready,” should North Korean officials respond to Thursday’s cancellation with a show of force. Japanese and South Korean officials have also vowed to respond if “foolish or reckless acts be taken by North Korea,” Trump said. Still, the president didn’t rule out the possibility of meeting with Kim. “A lot of things can happen, including the fact that, perhaps, it’s possible the existing summit could take place or a summit at some later date,” Trump said. “Nobody should be anxious. We have to get it right.” The president wrote in his letter to Kim that his decision to cancel the planned June 12 meeting came “based on the tremendous anger and open hostility” displayed in a recent statement from North Korea. >> From Jamie Dupree: President Trump scraps summit meeting with Kim Jong Un In the statement, the North Korean government referred to Vice President Mike Pence as a 'political dummy' and said it is just as ready to meet in a nuclear confrontation as at the negotiating table. “I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump wrote. “Please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.” Senior North Korean diplomat Choe Son Hui told North Korea’s state-run news agency on Thursday that, “Whether the U.S. will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States,” The Associated Press reported. >> Reports: North Korea demolishes nuclear test site Trump responded to the comment in his letter Thursday, telling Kim that, “You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.” The letter was released just hours after reports surfaced that North Korea had demolished a nuclear test site in the country's northeast region. The closing of the testing site had been announced as a step leading up to the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un, the Associated Press reported. Trump earlier this month announced that a historic meeting between him and Kim would take place in Singapore in June.

NBA rookie player Sterling Brown arrest video released by Milwaukee police

NBA rookie player Sterling Brown arrest video released by Milwaukee police

Milwaukee police released the bodycam footage of the night a Taser was used on rookie NBA player Sterling Brown and he was arrested. Brown, who plays for the Milwaukee Bucks, was arrested outside a Walgreens on Jan. 26 following a parking violation. >> Read more trending news In a police report, the officer said he repeatedly asked Brown to “step back” because he was standing so close to him. Brown refused and “became very aggressive,” WISN reported. After police backup arrived, the incident turned physical when Brown allegedly “resisted being handcuffed.” A Taser was used on Brown during the incident. He was evaluated at a local hospital before being booked into the Milwaukee County Jail. He was released a few hours later and issued a parking ticket. The incident prompted an internal investigation. In a statement, Brown said, “My experience in January with the Milwaukee Police Department was wrong and shouldn’t happen to anybody. What should have been a simple parking ticket turned into an attempt at police intimidation, followed by the unlawful use of physical force, including being handcuffed and tased, and then unlawfully booked. This experience with the Milwaukee Police Department has forced me to stand up and tell my story so that I can help prevent these injustices from happening in the future.” He ended his statement by saying, “I will take legal action against the Milwaukee Police Department to continue forcing change in our community.” After an internal investigation, the department released the arrest video and a statement, apologizing that the “incident escalated to this level.” Milwaukee Police Department Chief Alfonso Morales said, “When I took office, I vowed to rebuild trust between the Milwaukee Police Department and the community. We are doing that. I promised that when the department is involved in events of this nature, we will be honest about them. We are.”

President Trump scraps summit meeting with Kim Jong Un

After days of uncertainty about a planned June 12 summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump on Thursday told Kim in a letter that because of hostile statements from the Pyongyang regime in recent days, the summit in Singapore would not take place.

“Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is in appropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” the President wrote in his letter to Kim.

The decision came as North Korean officials seemed to back away from public assurances that they would [More]
