Donald Trump Players Who Don't Stand Don't Belong In America!

Donald Trump Players Who Don't Stand Don't Belong In America!

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sparked the protests in 2016 after he refused to stand during the national anthem and honor a song and a flag that he said "oppresses black people and people of color".

Under the new policy, players may choose to remain in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem, but owners said that those who choose to be on the sideline will be expected to stand. "So I ask my conservative friends who talk about this issue so much if they will also stand up for protesting #NFL players".

You knew this was coming: President Donald Trump, whose fiery comments on National Football League protesters past year inflamed his populist base, spoke with satisfaction Thursday morning about new rules that sharply restrict pregame protests.

"If the team gets fined, that's just something I'll have to bear".

"This country is very smart; we have very smart people and, you know, that's something ideally could have been taken care of when it first started, it would have been a lot easier, but if they did that, they did the right thing", he said.

It wouldn't be wise to neglect anything that POTUS says, so the league and team owners chose to react as they are quite scared of what Mr. Trump could do.

Deadly Texas school shooting gunman 'confused,' his lawyers say
Reice Tisdale, Jr., a police detective, was off-duty Friday when he learned about the shooting at Santa Fe High School . More than 200 officers from a variety of agencies would eventually respond to the school, he said, thanking them.

Though Trump did not like that people had the option of staying in the locker room, he was generally in favor of the new policy. "I brought it out. He's fired, '" Mr Trump said at the time.

In an interview with Fox and Friends on Thursday, Trump said the "NFL owners did the right thing". CEO Christopher Johnson told Newsday.

Trump praised the league's decision - with a caveat.

He added: "I don't want to come down on them like a ton of bricks, and I won't".

Both are Republicans, although it's unclear whether their objections to the kneeling are rooted in their "partisan political affiliation", given that Mr. Kaepernick hasn't framed his protest as anti-Republican and isn't known as a member of the Democratic Party or any other political party. There are some big, complicated issues that we're all struggling with, and our players are on the front lines. I'm someone who's always looked at the anthem as a declaration of ideals, including the right to peaceful protest.
