According to CNN, two Trump administration officials told the network that White House chief of staff John Kelly was not pleased with the fight that erupted over the weekend between President Donald Trump and National Football League players who protest by kneeling during the national anthem.

President Trump responded to the CNN report stating it was fake news.

He tweeted: “@CNN is #FakeNews. Just reported COS (John Kelly) was opposed to my stance on NFL players disrespecting FLAG, ANTHEM, COUNTRY. Total lie!”

He followed up with another tweet: “General John Kelly totally agrees w/ my stance on NFL players and the fact that they should not be disrespecting our FLAG or GREAT COUNTRY!”

He then launched a 3rd tweet: “Tremendous backlash against the NFL and its players for disrespect of our Country. #StandForOurAnthem”

In a brief interview Monday evening, Kelly told CNN he is “appalled” by what he sees as a lack of respect for the flag and national anthem.
“I believe every American, when the national anthem is played, should cover their hearts and think about all the men and women who have been maimed and killed,” Kelly said. “Every American should stand up and think for three lousy minutes.”
His son, Robert Michael Kelly, was killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2010.
