President Donald Trump continued his twitter feud with NFL players Tuesday morning.

According to Trump, he says NFL ratings were down over the weekend except for the very beginning of the game.

"Ratings for NFL football are way down except before game starts, when people tune in to see whether or not our country will be disrespected!" said the president on Twitter.

He went on to say the booing during the game Monday night was the "loudest I have ever heard."

However, Trump called the Dallas Cowboys kneeling before the anthem then standing up "progress."
