The President of the United States is on the warpath with the NFL again this morning, issuing his usual subtle threats. Donald Trump is using the NFL as a foil in his battle to make himself synonymous with patriotism and the flag, after his strong-arming teams into making guys stand for the national anthem is beginning to work (at least in Dallas and Miami). Of course, the NFL gave up its tax-exempt status in 2015 (for reasons that aren’t entirely to do with their tax obligations), and the President is famously in favor of lowering tax rates for other big businesses.
