Saturday afternoon, Bills running back Lesean McCoy took to Twitter to let his followers know how he felt about President Trump's heavy criticism of the NFL

During a campaign rally in Alabama on Friday night, President Donald Trump attacked the NFL and its owners.

He told the audience he believes team owners should fire players for taking a knee during the national anthem. 

The President also later added if fans left the stadium when players kneel in protest of the national anthem "things would stop." 

 McCoy pulled no punches when he had this to say: 

Trump has yet to respond to McCoy but is tied up with another incident involving NBA star Lebron James.

It started when Trump tweeted Saturday morning that Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry, had his invitation to White house rescinded. Lebron fired back at Trump calling him a 'bum' in one of his tweets.
