Trump made a strange remark calling the NHL players a 'very handsome group of people,' adding 'I don't like standing in front of them,' saying he preferred 'unattractive teams' Afterward, Penguins Coach Mike Sullivan answered questions about the national anthem controversey, He was asked if he'd be bothered by any of his players taking the knee during the Star Spangled Banner which he replied "No, I would not."
