National Anthem Protest

But Trump boasted Friday of the other winning teams he's welcomed to the White House in the past, including the New England Patriots.

Overall, 61% of voters said they do not approve of Trump's handling of race relations, the poll found. No Eagles players took a knee during the national anthem last season.

It will be interesting to see how the players react to Trump's proposal. He wants to hear from these players so they can recommend to him people deserving of pardons.

On Friday, Trump called his presidential power to pardon people a "beautiful thing", adding that "you got to get it right".

Trump also raised some eyebrows when he said he was considering pardoning deceased boxing icon Muhammed Ali - many noted that this was technically impossible since the charges against Ali were overturned by the Supreme Court decades ago.

Christopher Johnson, the CEO of the New York Jets, has said that his team would not discipline any player who protests during the anthem and would pay the league's fine in such an instance.
