Treasury chief: First Amendment for players _ off the field

Treasury chief: First Amendment for players _ off the field”

Mnuchin says standing during the anthem shows respect for the military and first responders. You have to have your uniforms tucked in. The Steelers have made a decision to stay in the locker room during the anthem, Tomlin said, so players aren't "forced to choose sides".

"Players have the right for free speech off the field". "I supported Donald Trump", Ryan said.

Trump reiterated his comments on Twitter over the weekend.

"I think what the president is saying is that the owner should have a rule that the players should have to stand and [have] respect for the national anthem", Mnuchin added.

"I think the president can use whatever language he wants to use", Munchin responded.

"The NFL has all different types of rules", Mnuchin said, pointing to the many restrictions on player conduct that teams put in place, and the teams' ability, within certain constraints, to punish players who violate those rules. "Fire or suspend!" Trump tweeted Sunday morning. "And yet, when an National Football League player takes a knee, somehow that player is presumed to be a martyr for a social cause".

"This is a job and the employers have a right when the players are working to have rules", Mnuchin told ABC's This Week.

Kaepernick, who is now without a team, told NFL Media last August: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color".

The joint poll by the Washington Post and ABC News found that only 23 percent of 12-hundred respondents said the USA should launch an attack before North Korea can strike America or its allies. They have the right to have the first amendment off the field.
