Tapper on Friday accused the president of sowing division ahead of a weekend anniversary of last summer's violent "Unite the Rally" in Charlottesville, Va. - where white supremacists clashed with counter-protest - by condemning NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem instead.
In response, Jordan remarked how Trump is all too willing to condemn protesting National Football League players but refuses to mention the white-supremacist rally taking place in his own backyard.
"The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem", Trump wrote via Twitter. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that majority are unable to define. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest.
Colin Kaepernick, the free agent NFL quarterback at the center of the national anthem-kneeling controversy, was spotted at Penn Law School on Thursday with a team of lawyers in a likely development of the case alleging there was collusion between teams to keep him out of the league.

Trump prompted a wave of backlash over his hesitance to condemn white supremacists for the deadly rally past year, asserting at the time that there is "blame on both sides". "How about we get a statement on the "unite the right" rally 2 be held in DC this weekend. a year after the first one in Charlottesville?"
Trump took notice of a small number of players who protested during the anthem in various ways.
