President Donald Trump signaled a small victory over the NFL after the Dallas Cowboys stood for the National Anthem at the beginning of their Monday night football game.

“Big progress being made-we all love our country!” he wrote on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

But the president pointed out that the Cowboys dropped to one knee in unison prior to the anthem, which promoted “great anger” and booing from fans at the stadium.

Trump pointed out that ratings for NFL football games were “way down” except for during the beginning of games as people tuned in for the drama.

Since Friday, Trump prompted an uproar over the NFL players protesting the National Anthem as each team struggled with how to respond.
