    Trump is taking aim again against the NFL over protests.

    The NFL fired back against President Donald Trump Tuesday after he renewed his complaints about NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem to protest racism and police brutality.

    Trump tweeted that at least 24 players kneeled during weekend play at stadiums that he says are having a hard time filling up with fans. 

    The NFL responded telling CNBC that 98 percent of all available tickets have been sold and that ticket sales are down only 1 percent, which doesn't include the LA Chargers and Rams which both significantly reduced seating capacity.
