White House Defends Trump’s Comments (CTV News Canada)

Professor Stephen Farnsworth of the University of Mary Washington said that President Trump's attacks on the NFL will resonate with his political base. Farnsworth said Trump supporters are likely to see the controversy as a matter of disrespect, as the White House does. Farnsworth said that Trump has been far more concerned by what has been happening inside football stadiums that the horrific conditions unfolding in Puerto Rico, a US territory where millions are suffering in the wake of an extremely powerful hurricane.
