Colin Kaepernick's legal team is expected to ask for federal subpoenas for Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and top White House officials familiar with the president's anti-NFL position, Yahoo! Monday, Trump disinvited Super Bowl winners the Philadelphia Eagles from the White House after incorrectly accusing those players of kneeling during the national anthem.

He also repeated his preference that all Americans and professional athletes stand and recognize the national anthem again.

"I'm going to ask all of those people to recommend to me-because that's what they're protesting-people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system". And I understand that.

But Republican voters, by a wide margin of 70 percent to 23 percent, said that players who kneel to protest police violence and social injustice are not patriots.

Trump said that if he and his committee find that those people were treat unfairly, "then we will pardon them, or at least let them out". The vice-president had walked out of an Indianapolis Colts game a year ago after players on the field knelt in silent protest during the anthem in what may have been a pre-planned political stunt.

But Trump has earned some praise by boxing greats for his decision last month to grant a posthumous pardon for Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight boxing champion, who was convicted of racially tinged federal morals charges more than a century ago. It says that players can choose to remain in the locker room for the playing of the anthem but are expected to stand for the anthem if they are on the field.

Jenkins also released a statement which noted several initiatives Eagles players have taken to better their communities and also accused the White House of lying about the Eagles' perceived patriotism.

"I didn't invite Lebron James and I didn't invite Steph Curry".

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out". Star players Stephen Curry of the Warriors and LeBron James of the Cavaliers have been critical of Trump.

"I think we'll have the Caps, we'll see", Trump said, referring to the Washington Capitals, which clinched the Stanley Cup Thursday night. "If they don't want to be here, I don't want them".
