Jerry Jones talks Trump conversation, Anthem Protests and Lee injury

Trump tweets that the Cowboys will keep standing for the anthem after he spoke to the owner

President Trump says NFL owners are 'afraid of their players'

"Players will stand for Country!"

President Trump continued his criticisms against National Football League players and executives who took a knee or protested before this week's games.

"It wouldn't surprise me if the participation and the recognition of unity and recognition of equality, it wouldn't surprise me if that were a template going forward in the NFL", Jones said.

In Arizona, the Cowboys, along with team owner Jerry Jones, took a collective knee before the song.

Numerous teams have been kneeling or locking arms before games after Trump sparked anger by saying protesting players are disrespecting the United States flag and should even be fired.

On his personal website, Bolton says he will "resume Nigel Farage's legacy by restoring UKIP's relevance and authority". Bolton reportedly said he was "fine" with the new design. "I abhor the rhetoric that we are at war with Islam".

Additionally, while Dallas receiver Dez Bryant said the team's actions were "a clear shot at Trump" for disparaging fellow NFL players, tight end Jason Witten said he refuses to protest during the national anthem.

The Cowboys owner previously expressed his opposition to players kneeling during the National Anthem during a radio interview with CBS in August.

"The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard".

Trump has said that kneeling during the anthem is disrespectful to American service members and to the national anthem.

The government's humanitarian assistance plan will see the distribution of hundreds of thousands of face masks . It's been more than 50 years since Agung's last eruption , which continued for nearly a year.

Notably, the Cowboys were joined by team owner Jerry Jones, who has in the past been an outspoken critic of Colin Kaepernick's kneeling protest.

"You can not have people disrespecting our national anthem, our flag, our country", Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for a trip to Indiana.

"As long as it's peaceful and they show unity when they do it, I'm all for it", Jones said.

In widespread protests at the weekend, players responded by kneeling, linking arms or staying in the locker room. The finished product is what we saw on the field in Arizona, and Jones said he was proud of his guys for that.

It's also possible that this will become the first step in an effort to divide the ownership ranks, with the President praising Jones while bashing others, either generally or individually.
