The president of the United States said Thursday that the national anthem would be played during the 2017 football season but it’s not likely to be the case.
“We will support those players who want to protest the national anthems.
It’s up to them, and I’ll make that determination as it comes,” Obama said during a press conference.
The president also said he has a very good relationship with NFL players, though he said he would prefer players to not stand during the national achilles heel anthem.
The White House announced Thursday that it had not decided what to do with the anthem during the season, but the team has not said anything about the president’s comments.
“What I’ve said, again, is that I don’t have a problem with what the players are doing, but I don.
That’s the issue,” Obama told reporters at the White House.
He also made it clear he doesn’t like the way some teams have used the anthem, and he suggested that the NFL should make it a bigger deal.
“I don’t think we should be using the anthem as an excuse to play games,” he said.
“You know, it’s a game.
It has to be played.”
He also said that the players should have more say in the anthem.
“That’s up for the players, and that’s up with the owners, who are the ones who are going to decide what happens, and it’s up in the owners’ hands,” Obama added.
Obama is the first president to make the comment, but he’s the first to make it about the national team.
It comes as the team is preparing to host the defending champion New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
The Patriots have been criticized by some for disrespecting the anthem by playing a pre-game show that plays the national song, “Born Free.”
Obama also said it was “wrong” to criticize players for their protest, saying he was “absolutely outraged” by some who were “shocked and appalled” at the idea.
“If I can just put it this way, I think if you think it’s right, if you believe in it, if the national flag is being used to protest, that’s fine,” Obama continued.
“I’m going to stand up for everybody who’s trying to make America better.
I’m not going to let anyone disrespect the flag.”
Obama did not mention the anthem in his remarks, which was a bit more forceful than his remarks last year when he said players should “stand for the national Anthem.”
“What is the National Anthem, folks?
It’s the anthem of our country.
It means what it says.
And I think the president is right to think that it’s the best song, that it means what we think it means,” he continued.
The National Anthem is the official national anthem of the U.N. and the U., and has been the anthem played during major sporting events in the U, including the Super Bowl, the Olympics, and the World Cup.
