The posture of the president and his allies contrasts with a widespread sense around the NFL, and among Democratic strategists, that Trump is in a weakened position and that his efforts to drag pro football into another debate in the culture wars could backfire.
The effort to refashion Trump and his party as embracing of diversity has clashed with the lrecord of a president whose political career been defined by themes of white nationalism and a willingness to sow deep divisions in American society.
Presidents of both parties have mixed a measure of campaigning with official White House business, but Trump has trampled over norms once respected by both parties and challenged legal boundaries that limit political activity by federal officials.
