Washington, Sep 25 (IANS): US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Sunday said that they wanted to avoid nuclear war with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Mnuchin said the president was prepared to respond if that scenario were to ever play out.

Republican adviser Karl Rove called Trump a "loser in the minds of the American people" after the president said, "get that son of a b***h off the field" regarding protesting National Football League players. "So, you know, why didn't they wear stickers?" You have to have your uniforms tucked in. "I think the president's words are real divisive".

"Kneeling, taking a knee, or sitting during the national anthem has never been about disrespecting this country", Boldin said to ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz on "This Week" Sunday. "He's fired, '" Trump said Friday. The backlash from the sports world has since grown and has become louder, with everybody from college football coaches to NFL owners ― including one Trump has long called a friend ― speaking out against Trump's comments. "Foreign financial institutions are now on notice that going forward they can choose to do business with the United States or with North Korea, but not both". "Fire or suspend!" Trump tweeted Sunday morning. "This is about respect for the military, the first responders".

He continued, "This isn't about Democrats, it's not about Republicans, it's not about race, it's not about free speech".

"This is a job and the employers have a right when the players are working to have rules", Mnuchin told ABC's This Week.

Kaepernick, who is now without a team, told NFL Media last August: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color". I think what the president is saying is that the owners should have a rule that players should have to stand and respect the National Anthem.
