US President Donald Trump just came out today against the National Football League and dealt them a death blow. He said that they should not be given tax breaks anymore after their silent player protests.
“Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!” Trump wrote on twitter.

The House has not returned comment on the issue, says Reuters. The NFL gave up its tax-exempt status in 2015 – according to the media. Many US states offer the teams billion dollar league tax breaks to help finance stadiums.
Mike Pence recently walked out of an NFL game after players knelt. The Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that he would bench any players who disrespect the flag.
Remember the kneel that started it all?
Take a look at that image above. That’s how sad and pitiful the NFL kneeling is.
Share this if you are tired of these NFL kneelers. We should stop giving tax subsidies to teams that hate this country.
