(CNBC) — The 2016 election goes on.
On Monday, President Donald Trump gleefully urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president again in 2020. He also suggested that her stance on professional athletes protesting racial inequality during the national anthem is an example of why she lost the election in November.

"Is she going to run? I hope. Hillary, please run again! Go ahead," the president said during a news conference with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
He then said Clinton's support of NFL players who choose to kneel during the national anthem was "wrong." During a public appearance in England, Clinton reportedly defended the players' right to demonstrate against racial injustice, saying it does not go against the national anthem or the American flag.
