Kaepernick Seeks To Subpoena Trump, Pence In Collusion Case Against NFL

Philadelphia Eagles players kneel in prayer not protest before a 2017 game in Philadelphia

POTUS wants their recommendations of people who were treated unfairly by the system and deserves a pardon.

On Friday, speaking to reporters before leaving for a Group of Seven summit in Canada, Trump challenged those players, the majority of whom are African-American, to advise him on employing his pardon power. "They seem to be saying, "You can still love your country and kneel during its Anthem, ' but the NFL's new 'must stand" mandate is fine with them, too", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll said. Trump also said if his review committee determines the people the athletes recommend for pardons were unfairly treated, "then we will pardon them or at least let them out". The President also floated a pardon for posthumous boxing great Muhammad Ali, though the athlete's attorney said that is "unnecessary" because the Supreme Court overturned his previous conviction.

Meanwhile, away from the White House, Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt continued to make headlines for a growing list of scandals.

Overall, 58 percent said that players who kneel during the anthem are not unpatriotic, compared to 35 percent who said they are, according to the poll.

"You know, I don't have to do that", Trump said. Trump canceled the Philadelphia Eagles' planned visit to the White House this week after learning that most players on the Super Bowl-winning team would not attend.

In addition, China would buy more US crude oil and natural gas exports to quench its thirst for energy. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and his delegation leaving Beijing without making a public statement.

According to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday, by a 53-to-43% margin, Americans are in support of National Football League players right to kneel in protest, reports CNN. Kaepernick has been at the forefront of the controversy surrounding players kneeling during the national anthem. "He's fired", he said in September at a campaign rally in Huntsville, Alabama.

And he again Friday mentioned players shouldn't be in the locker room during the anthem, a solution offered by the NFL's new national anthem policy.

Now, all eyes are on the G7 summit as the world watches Trump meet with fellow global leaders after saying he thinks Russian Federation should be reinstated to the leading group of industrialized nations.

"You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn't be playing - you shouldn't be there", Trump said in an interview with "Fox & Friends".

Trump has recently wielded his presidential powers to pardon a variety of people, from late heavyweight champion boxer Jack Johnson to conservative firebrand Dinesh D'Souza.
