The athletes who are protesting the National Anthem are totally DISRESPECTFUL AND UNPATRIOTIC to the country that has given them so much.
The MSM rushed to attack President Trump when he gave similar statement last year but it seems that he was right again!
Yesterday NFL announced that teams will be fined if players kneel for the US national anthem under a new policy.
The American football league said players who do not stand for the Star-Spangled Banner can stay in the locker room until it has been performed.
The NFL also vowed to “impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem”.
Players said the protests were against police brutality of African Americans.
“It was unfortunate that on-field protests created a false perception among many that thousands of NFL players were unpatriotic,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a statement accompanying Wednesday’s new policy.
“This is not and was never the case. This season, all-league and team personnel shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.”
President Trump double down the attack on the unpatriotic Americans that make millions!
Trump criticized the league’s players who might challenge the rule and continue to kneel in protest, suggesting “maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.”
“I don’t think people should be staying in locker rooms,” Trump said in an interview with “Fox and Friends” this morning. “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing. You shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem.”
NFL players protest is a national sick joke!!
They picked the wrong forum and manner on this issue. The national anthem and flag are honored at sporting events for veterans that served and gave their life for our country.
NFL players abuse women and yes there are some bad cops but Disrespecting Country, veterans, and a flag is a dishonor, not a protest!! The right to protest does not make it right!!
I have to say President Trump is right again!
