Trump rolled out a tweetstorm Tuesday morning covering immigration, the NFL, taxes, health care, and ESPN's Jemele Hill. In his continued frustration with NFL players who kneel during the national anthem, Trump called for a change to tax law: "Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!"

Background: The NFL gave up its tax exempt status in 2015, but some Republican lawmakers in recent weeks have been toying with the idea of taking away NFL tax breaks.
