Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

During an interview with FOX 5 on budget autonomy, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray also gave his thoughts on President Barack Obama's comments to the Associated Press about the Redskins team name.

“I appreciate the president speaking out on our Washington football team,” said Gray. “Now I want him to speak out on our Washington District of Columbia city and free us from bondage also.”

We asked him if he refers to the team as the Redskins anymore, he told us, “No, I say the Washington football team.”
