President Donald Trump is pleased with how his criticisms of the National Football League and its players have been received, according to a person who attended a dinner with the president and conservative group leaders on Monday night.

"It's really caught on. It's really caught on . . . I said what millions of Americans were thinking," Trump said at the Monday dinner, the source reported to CNN.

"You could really tell he was satisfied," the person said in CNN's report.

Trump was referencing his remarks over the weekend, including on Friday calling for the NFL to fire players who "disrespect" the U.S. flag.

Also at the dinner, the CNN source said the president called Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a "disgrace" on the healthcare reform issue, after McCain said he would not support the latest GOP bill.

At the dinner, the president also slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the attendee told CNN.

"You can tell he still has disdain for this guy . . . the room was a little uncomfortable. He really pounded him," the source said.

The president also said that when discussing tax reform, "just call it tax cuts," because tax reform sounds "convoluted," the source reported to CNN.

The president continued to take aim at the NFL on Tuesday, saying that the league needs a rule against kneeling during the national anthem.
