"To hear the President of the United States single out certain professional athletes and call for their termination of employment was jarring and disappointing, as was his disregard for player health
and safety. Like NFL players, and players across the North American sports landscape, MLS players spend countless hours off the field doing charitable work that makes a significant impact in the
communities in which they play. All players have every right to exercise their Constitutional rights and we will do everything in our power to defend those rights when they are challenged."
