Trump Blasts New York Giants DE Olivier Vernon For Kneeling During Anthem

Olivier Vernon kneels during national anthem.

Donald Trump once again went after the NFL on Friday.

New York Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon took a knee for the national anthem against on Thursday night, and Friday morning, President Donald Trump appears to have responded on Twitter.

Trump, directly responding to a post on Vernon's decision to kneel, said that commissioner Roger Goodell has "lost control" of the league. He noted that players are now the boss.

This isn't Trump's first tweet on the matter, and it likely won't be his last.

Later in the day, Trump tweeted that he's playing golf today with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson.
