Trump maintains up clash with NFL, claims ratings are ‘way down’

( CNN) President signaled Tuesday morning that he is not backing down from his conflict with the NFL, claiming the league’s ratings are down in the wake of growing protests during the national anthem.

“Ratings for NFL are way down except before game starts, when people tune in to see whether or not our country is likely to be disrespected! ” Trump wrote on Twitter.

He added, “The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard. Great anger … But while Dallas dropped to its knees as a squad, they all stood up for our National Anthem. Big progress being made-we all love our country! “
