Trump DROPS THE HAMMER On NFL Kneelers – Look What He Just Took From Him…

Over the past few weeks, hundreds of NFL players have been taking a knee during the national anthem to protest against President Donald Trump and against racial inequality. Now, Trump is firing back at them in a big way.

Freedom Daily reported that what most Americans don’t know is that the NFL has received over $1 billion in federal subsidies. Now, they are in danger of losing these subsidies from taxpayers, as many feel that if NFL players are going to disrespect our anthem, they do not deserve our tax dollars.

“There’s $1.1 billion in direct subsidies from taxpayers to the NFL… Taxpayer subsidies go to the building of stadiums. There have been 20 new NFL stadiums since 1997. All of them have received a degree of taxpayer subsidies,” said Fox News host Stuart Varney. “According to FOX Sports over the last 20 years, the American public has spent more than $7 billion dollars to build or renovate NFL stadiums, taking on 46 percent of the total costs of those projects.”

Oklahoma Republican Rep. Steve Russell just presented a bill that would cut off the NFL from federal subsidies.
‘The federal government is responsible for a lot of important functions, but financing sports stadiums for multi-million – sometimes billion – dollar franchises is definitely not one of them,’ Rep. Russell said.

Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz just wrote an oped for The Daily Signal in which he explained that he has also drawn up a bill to cut the NFL off from receiving federal taxes. That way, taxpayers will no longer have to fund this anti-American nonsense.

“…the NHL, PGA Tour, and LPGA are also currently tax-exempt, despite earning over $2 billion per year in gross revenue,” Gaetz wrote, later adding, “That’s why I’ve decided to be the lead sponsor of H.R. 296, the PRO Sports Act, a bill that would end the tax-exempt status for sports leagues making over $10 million annually. I’ve sent a letter to Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, asking for this to be included in the tax overhaul. With tax reform currently one of the highest priorities of Congress, it’s time to end this unjustified, unjustifiable provision.”
