Over the weekend, #Donald Trump spent much of his time either venting about the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in #Puerto Rico, or working on his golf game at one of his private resorts in New Jersey. However, after completing several rounds of golf, Trump went back to his Twitter [VIDEO] account to continue his feud with the National Football League (#NFL) over whether or not players have the right to protest the national anthem.

Trump on NFL

It started just over a week ago in Alabama when Donald Trump visited the state to campaign for Luther Strange, the underdog candidate who ended up losing earlier this week in a run-off election to fill a vacant seat in the Senate.

During his speech, Trump brought up the issue of NFL players protesting the national anthem before games, with the billionaire real estate mogul referring to them as a "son of a bitch" who should be fired. In the days that followed, backlash came pouring in from the sports world, including harsh words on more than one occasion from NBA star LeBron James who referred to the president as a "bum." On the Sunday following Trump's remarks, over 200 players took part in the largest national anthem protest in league history. Since then, the war of words has continued, as the former host of "The Apprentice" has spent more time lashing out at the NFL than offering positive words for the hurricane survivors in Puerto Rico. As seen on his Twitter feed on September 30, Trump decided that he wasn't done attacking [VIDEO] the the sport of football.

In between posts about his thoughts on Hurricane Maria and the current state of Puerto Rico, Donald Trump took time to bash the NFL once again. "Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem," Trump tweeted out, before calling on the players to "Respect our Flag and our Country!"

Donald Trump's comments come just days after speaking to reporters where he accused NFL team owners of being "scared" of the players over the issue of protesting the national anthem, going as far as claiming it's a "disgrace." The issue has divided the American people, with the consensus being split down party lines.

As expected, conservatives have taken the side of the president, while most liberals have strongly opposed Trump's viewpoint.

Moving forward

While Donald Trump spends even more time on his feud with the NFL, he's dealing with multiple issues plaguing his administration. On Friday, Tom Price was forced to resign as Secretary of Health an Human Services following the scandal that revealed he used over $1 million in taxpayer money to fund his private plane rides. In addition, Trump's slow response to the aftermath of Puerto Rico has dominated the headlines, which hasn't gone over well with the president.
