The White House did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily News.

He added, to applause, "We want our national anthem respected, too". Trump says most of the benefits of the legislation are "going to working families, small businesses and family farmers".

The remarks came at an appearance at the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual meeting in Nashville, which he attended with U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue.

Before entering the field for the national anthem Trump was greeted with a mixed reaction.

In a not-so-veiled slap at the Kneel-FL, President Donald Trump hit the field for the national anthem before tonight's Alabama-Georgia College Football Playoff Championship Game in Atlanta.


As a result, several groups, including the NAACP, have planned protests at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

In a statement, the city's NAACP branch said they expect hundreds of protestors to hold anti-Trump signs while wearing to wear white as a mocking reference to the nickname "snowflake", which they said is a "nickname Trump supporters throw at their opponents".

The president was at the ceremony to make the opening of the college football national championships on Monday. Players from both Alabama and Georgia generally avoided questions about Trump's attendance during media interviews over the weekend.

President Donald Trump likes to use the bully pulpit to put black athletes and sports figures in their place. Trump is the first sitting president to attend a college football game since Barack Obama attended the 2011 Army-Navy game.

On Monday night, the President stood with his hand over his heart, singing along to parts of the anthem ahead of the game between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium, reports CNN.
