Paul Ryan: 'It's Misguided To Protest The Anthem And The Flag'

Paul Ryan: 'It's Misguided To Protest The Anthem And The Flag'”

"What I don't think people see from the get-go is when you do it on the flag and the anthem, it looks like you're protesting against the ideals of America, the patriotism, the people who put their lives on the line, given their life for the country", he said to reporters Thursday.

Ryan wouldn't comment on President Donald Trump's remarks about the protests because he said he hadn't seen all of Trump's statements. But doing so in front of the US flag, "it looks like you're protesting against the ideals of America". "My own view though is we shouldn't do it on the anthem". "The national anthem, our flag and the people who defend it and who represent it should be celebrated everywhere and always".

Trump said Friday during a rally in Huntsville, Ala, that he believes players who kneel or sit during the national anthem should be fired.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of the National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say 'Get that son of a b-- off the field right now?'" Trump said. House weighs tougher rules for banks dealing with North Korea MORE (R-Wis.) said Congress is working with the Trump administration on humanitarian aid for Puerto Rico in the wake of devastating damage from Hurricanes Irma and Maria. A few teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, stayed inside their locker room while the anthem was played.

Ryan, who counts himself as a co-owner of the Green Bay Packers, expressed his disapproval of players who have refused to stand during the anthem, many of whom are protesting police brutality and racial inequality.

At an event, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other top lawmakers framed their proposal as vital to boosting wages and job opportunities.
