Donald Trump Fires Back at NFL Players Who Kneel as Teams Show Support

Donald Trump is doubling down on his criticism of NFL players who kneel for the National Anthem.

The 71-year-old took to Twitter on Sunday (September 24) ahead of a full slate of football games to tweet, “If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!”

He then added, “…NFL attendance and ratings are WAY DOWN. Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love our country. League should back U.S.”

Meanwhile, NFL team owners have been speaking out in support of their players who choose to kneel during the Anthem.

    For someone so focused on ratings, you think he’d be more interested in his own approval rating instead of award shows and the NFL.

    It’s almost as if our President has other things to be thinking about other than football players. Idk, like leading the country, maybe.

    The audacity of Donald Trump, who SIEG HEIL’s under the confederate flag, the swastika and THE RED SOVIET SICKLE, talking about people who have no respect for America.

    This man needs to be tried for espionage for all the evil anti-American shit he’s done.

    Dissent is as American as apple pie. And this protest has opened up how racist our national anthem is. If Donald Trump expects apologies when called a white supremist, because NOW for him, it’s a bad thing then why not be angry at our ANTHEM that is about and written by a white supremist!

    He need to worry about the real issues like running the country! Football has nothing to do with policy, healthcare, avoiding war, the US budget and keeping this country from collapsing. I guess President Obama left us in greater shape than Grump and others tried to sell everyone because Grump has too much time to Tweet, Golf and campaign for nothing around the country.
