President Donald Trump gave Jerry Jones some advice about the national anthem protests.
Trump said that the the topic of the anthem is "a very winning, strong issue for me," according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.
"Tell everybody, you can't win this one," Trump told Jones, according to the report. "This one lifts me."
The comments were repeated by Jones during a sworn deposition in the Colin Kaepernick collusion grievance against the NFL and the owners.

The NFL is currently being sued by Kaepernick and Eric Reid. Both are former members of the San Francisco 49ers and are currently free agents. Both individuals are also alleging that NFL teams colluded to keep them out of the league.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones is also a strong defender of standing for the anthem. Early in the season, Jones said he’d bench any Dallas Cowboys player who protested during the national anthem.
