The president continued his three-day crusade by renewing his demand for action against players who kneel during the national anthem in an effort to protest police violence against minorities. In the first NFL game since Trump’s comments, the Jaguars and the Ravens — playing in London — knelt during the national anthem. And Patriots CEO Robert Kraft, a friend of Trump who gave him a Super Bowl ring during a White House visit, condemned the president’s comments.
As “The Star-Spangled Banner” played before kickoff in London, they linked arms or took a knee. A lone Baltimore athlete stood but seemed to be in prayer. All players appeared to stand for the British anthem.
A Post-ABC poll finds 37 percent of adults trust President Trump “a great deal” or “a good amount” to responsibly handle the situation with North Korea, while 42 percent trust the commander in chief “not at all.” By comparison, 72 percent trust U.S. military leaders. Only 8 percent of Americans surveyed think Kim Jong Un can act responsibly. A war of words last week between Pyongyang and Washington may have opened a potentially dangerous new chapter in the North Korea crisis.
Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said President Trump’s “rocket man” insult for Kim Jong Un makes a military clash more likely. Trump responded to Ri’s comments in a tweet Saturday night: “If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!”
If Sen. Susan Collins of Maine comes out as a definitive no vote, the GOP legislation to overhaul the Affordable Care Act would fail. But the Cassidy-Graham bill’s advocates said they would continue trying to pass it this week.
