Trump Says He Doesn’t Want His Son Barron Playing Football Because It’s a ‘Dangerous Sport’

US President Donald Trump has said he would not steer his son Barron towards American football, saying it is "a unsafe sport". So, you know I hate to say it because I love to watch football.

In December a year ago, he signed into law a landmark criminal-justice reform bill dubbed the "First Step Act" that directly addressed unfair disparities that had plagued the judicial system for decades. "No, I wouldn't", said Trump.

Trump also sounded off about the national anthem controversy again.

Ezekiel Elliott #21 of the Dallas Cowboys kneels in the end zone before the game against the Seattle Seahawks during the Wild Card Round at AT&T Stadium on January 5, 2019 in Arlington, Texas. And he actually plays a lot of soccer. "No, I wouldn't", he said.

"A lot of it is having to do with reform from what I understand".

The act, co-sponsored by more than a third of the Senate, received evenly balanced support among both Democrats and Republicans. Certain mandatory minimum sentences also were adjusted.

As the protest begun by Kaepernick spread around the league, Trump seized on the issue and railed against the players, including urging team owners to fire the "son of a b-h" who refused to stand during "The Star Spangled Banner".

"You can't be kneeling for the national anthem".

"Today, if you hit too hard, 15 yards, throw him out of the game", Trump said while throwing a pretend penalty flag during his campaign-style rally in Alabama Friday night.

The president said the flag shouldn't be used in protest. The science is in its infancy, and based on what's been discovered so far, the prospects are not good that the news is going to get any better for those who play violent contact sports like football or hockey. "So it's not totally unique, but I - I would have a hard time with it".

The president says that many people, "including me, thought soccer would probably never make it in this country, but it really is moving forward rapidly". But you can't do that.
