6:05 am
his tweets were met with some quick responses from athletes, commissioners, and owners. eagles chairman and ceo jeffrey lurie released a statement saying in part he supports the players as they take their courage and character into communities to make them better or to call attention to injustice. on friday he called on nfl owners to fire players who don't stand during the anthem. reaction across the nfl was widespread with many team owners and players either issuing statements or posting their protests when he kneeled during the anthem before a preseason game last year. not just the nfl, president trump went after nba superstar steph curry and his golden state warriors. trump said he's not inviting the team to the white house after they considered not going to celebrate their nba title. curry spoke out about the tweet and criticized the president. >> to think of a leader of a
