Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones, says that President Trump told him the anthem issue “is a very strong, winning issue” for him, and that he was not going to let it go.
The comments come as the first transcripts from Jones’ testimony in the Kaepernick collusion case become public.
According to the Wall Street Journal’s Andrew Beaton, Trump told Jones, “This is a very winning, strong issue for me. Tell everybody, you can’t win this one. This one lifts me.”
Without confirming or denying the quote, a White House official told Beaton, “The majority of the American people agree with the president, love our country, love our flag and believe it should be respected.”
