Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam call President Trump's remarks 'misguided' and 'divisive'

The owners of the Browns released a statement Sunday morning showing support for players who choose to make a statement by kneeling during the national anthem.

Jimmy and Dee Haslam released the statement after dozens of Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars players kneeled during the national anthem before the start of Sunday's game at Wembley Stadium in London.

President Trump replied to the act with tweets, saying the players should be fired.

The Haslams spoke of support for their own players who choose with the intent "to create positive and unifying change."

"We must not let misguided, uninformed and divisive comments from the President or anyone else deter us from our efforts to unify," the statement reads. "Our stance in support of the liberties of peaceful, personal expression afforded to our players and all Americans will remain strong, and we will continue to encourage our players to respectfully use their earned platform to inspire positive change in our nation and throughout society."

The Haslam's statement comes after an ABC News/Washington Post poll shows 66% of the country feels President Trump has done more to divide the country than unite it.
