Earlier, Trump had ignited a firestorm of criticism after comments in which he described NFL players who chose to take a knee through renditions of the national anthem as “sons of bitches” who should be fired.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday called for changes to US tax law affecting the National Football League, fuelling a feud with the league and its players over protests that he says disrespect the nation.

“Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.
