“Trump attacks NFL Commissioner over BLM video.
President Donald Trump reacted to Roger Goodell’s Black Lives Matter video late on Sunday evening.
Goodell tweeted out a Black Lives Matter video on Friday night, admitting that the league had not listened enough to its black players. The commissioner tweeted out his remarks in response to a video made by several of the league’s star players, who asked for the NFL to do more to fight racial injustices.
“It has been a difficult time for our country. In particular, black people in our country,” Goodell said in the video. “First, my condolences to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and all the families who have endured police brutality. We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people. We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League, believe Black Lives Matter. I personally protest with you and want to be part of the much needed change in this country.
