"We would support the National Football League coming out and asking players to stand, as the president has done", said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders "We're glad to see National Football League taking positive steps in that direction".

Vice President Mike Pence walked out of a football game in IN when players kneeled on October 8, and Trump has been calling to change tax laws in order to make the NFL pay higher rates for "disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country".

"I know there was some suggestion this morning that the National Football League is the recipient of huge tax breaks", Lockhart said.

He went on to say that during the week of October 16, the National Football League higher-ups plan to get together in NY and have "a full and open discussion" regarding players not standing.

Spain gives Catalan leader 5 days to clarify independence

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the player's association executive director released a joint statement that said the league will work together on how to "make progress on the important social issues that players have vocalized".

Goodell's memo began by saying "we live in a country that can feel very divided", before claiming that sports "and especially the NFL" was able to help people set such divisions aside.

Things got even more controversial over the last month, when President Donald Trump said that fans should walk out of stadiums if they see players protesting and that owners should "fire" any players who engage in such protests.

"As he had discussed with the president, when several 49ers players disrespected the flag and the national anthem, the vice president made a decision to leave the game", the official said. And if they decide that they want to silence these individual players, if they decide they want to implement a rule that states: 'You must stand for the national anthem, you must come out that tunnel, out of that locker room, be on the sidelines and stand for the national anthem, ' it's perfectly within their right to do it as a private industry and a private employer.

Girls in the US had the 15th highest obesity rate in the world, and boys had the 12th highest obesity in the world. Conversely, the rise in high income countries has slowed and plateaued.

The White House also issued a statement from Pence, in which he says Americans should rally around the flag.

But the idea that we receive some sort of tax break is not true, so there's nothing really here to give up.

Pence's team Indianapolis defeated San Francisco, 26-23, in overtime.
