Are you claiming that the POTUS has the actual authority to fire a professional athlete? Of course not.

Therefore saying that such a person SHOULD be fire is NOT actually a threat TO fire them.

No more than you complaining to the manager at a business that a rude employee SHOULD be fired is actually threatening TO fire them. You have no AUTHORITY to actually fire them, thus your advocating to the manager is NOT actually a threat.
