Trump Hosts the Pittsburgh Penguins Amid National Anthem Debate

Trump Hosts the Pittsburgh Penguins Amid National Anthem Debate

President Donald Trump asked the owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team Tuesday if he would be willing to help renegotiate NAFTA during a White House visit.

Some on both traditional and social media have called the Penguins' decision to accept the invite an implicit endorsement of Trump.

Trump gushed over Sidney Crosby.

He then asked for the audience to give a round of applause to the police and first responders in Las Vegas who acted following the deadliest mass shooting in USA history in September.

Trump recently feuded with two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry over whether the champion Golden State Warriors would visit the White House.

"These guys don't want to be politicians", Trump said.

In August previous year, PM Lee - at the invitation of then President Barack Obama - visited the USA to commemorate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties. In June, Clemson's national championship football team made its way to the White House. "He's fired, '" Trump said.

Trump then turned to Burkle and praised his ability to negotiate before inviting him to get involved in re-negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement.

"I didn't feel any pressure", Sullivan said. During a rally last month, Trump referred to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the first to take a knee to protest racial injustice during the national anthem, as a "son of a bitch". The third-year coach added that the team respects the rights of other professional athletes who choose to openly protest during games or express themselves in other ways. "We're very respectful of it".

The comment drew widespread condemnation from sports stars and NFL owners, some of whom joined their players on the field to lock arms during the national anthem in defiance of the President.
