The owner of the Dallas Cowboys said he "appreciates" President Trump's weighing in on the national anthem protests by National Football League players.

“I certainly think that the thing he is addressing is certainly a part of how we want to make our game better,” Jerry Jones told CNN on Wednesday.

“There’s no question because of our visibility, our substantiveness, that we are looked to for social responsibility as well. This is all part of what I’ve been talking about with the commissioner, and certainly I appreciate not only the president, but I want everybody to be a fan of the Dallas Cowboys,” Jones said.

Jones originally knelt with his team for the national anthem, but since then has stated players will be benched for doing so.

NFL players have taken various other poses besides standing as a statement against racial injustice in America. However, veterans and others have taken offense at what they see as a snub to the American flag.
