President Trump has issued a response to the Drew Brees controversy.

Earlier this week, the New Orleans Saints QB found himself in hot water when he said players who kneel during the anthem to protest police brutality are “disrespecting the flag”.

After several of his teammates called him out, Brees issued several apologies for his comments.

On Friday, Trump came to Brees’ defense while also denouncing players who kneel during the anthem in protests.

Trump’s stance isn’t surprising considering his previous comments about Kaepernick years ago.
