Sports, Kaepernick's lawyers are expected to seek federal subpoenas in order to compel the president, vice president and "other officials familiar with the president's agenda on protesting National Football League players" to testify. Allegations that he was blackballed from the league for his high-profile and highly controversial on-field protests against police brutality, which saw him kneeling during the U.S. national anthem, have roiled ever since.

Protest leader: Colin Kaepernick is turning his sights on Trump as he sues the NFL's owners claiming they colluded illegally to quell player protests.

Jackson on Wednesday offered his own take on the ongoing battle between Donald Trump and the NFL, insisting the president prove he knows the words to the national anthem he demands people stand for.

And Yahoo Sports reported that recent disclosures show multiple owners had direct talks with Trump about players kneeling during the anthem.

Trump has seized on the anthem controversy, which was sparked by mostly black athletes protesting police brutality against people of color, to energize his political base.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross testified that Trump's comments 'changed the dialogue, ' adding that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft had also discussed the anthem with Trump. We have a great country, you should stand for our national anthem.

However, to compel Trump to testify, Kaepernick's legal team will need to make a compelling, detailed argument as to the relevance and impact the testimonies would have on the grievance. He became a free agent past year but wasn't signed by any team. This one lifts me'.

However, no Eagles players kneeled during the anthem last season, a fact former Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith pointed out on Twitter, calling Trump's decision to cancel the Eagles' visit "a cowardly act".
