Trump demands an end to tax breaks for the NFL

President Trump devoted half of his early morning tweets to sports, as he again went after the National Football League and tore into suspended ESPN anchor Jemele Hall, who has branded him a racist.

'Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!' the president first wrote.

The president then used Twitter to dabble into health care and immigration policy before calling out Hill, who was suspended Monday for two weeks for firing off more controversial tweets, this time about the NFL's national anthem protests.

'With Jemele Hill at the mike, it is no wonder ESPN ratings have "tanked,"' the president wrote. 'In fact, tanked so badly it is the talk of the industry!'

After the administration's beef with the NFL had quieted down for several days, Vice President Pence brought it back to roar Sunday by briefly appearing at an Indianapolis Colts game, saying he was there to see former quarterback Peyton Manning honored.

You wanna talk about one sided!! Jemille Hill calls (disrespects) The POTUS a racist/supremacist. Call for Boycott yes a "BOYCOTT" on owners advertisers which directly hurts ESPN on Twitter for all to see. No denying it. Its there. Gets Al Sharpton into it and now he's threatening law suits against ESPN because shes suspended two weeks. All this mess and she is facing two weeks suspension only and .....wait for it............Hank Williams JR was fired by ESPN for referencing Hitler when having a discussion about Obama???
Its as plain as day the LEFT has lost their freakin minds!! This is crazy! She was insubordinate and has/will cost her employer millions and she is still employed???? 100% if she was white she'd be looking for a new job!

They should never had received tax dollars at any level, Federal, State or local. Tax payers should not have to provide millions of dollars to multi-millionaires while there is social issues such as homeless, elderly and Vets that need help.

Lay it out there Prez, the truth needs to be told and the culprits need to be identified (i.e., 32 male owners of the NFL)

Why does the NFL get tax breaks at all, and on whose watch were they started and increased? And the big question, who got lifetime free tickets to every NFL game?
