Trump’s commentary did not stop at son of a ‘bitch’ and ‘you’re fired.’ He proceeded to suggest that the NFL ratings slump was because fans were too busy watching him. He also repeated his claim that the NFL has gone too soft and should not implement penalties that help player safety. His full remarks are below.
