Trump calls for NFL players who protest national anthem to be suspended

Trump calls for NFL players who protest national anthem to be suspended

"The Palm Beach County PBA recently offered our members discounts to a Miami Dolphins game because the franchise said they were going to honor all first responders".

President Trump unloaded on the protesting NFL players who chose to demonstrate during the performance of the United States national anthem Thursday night, saying all athletes should "stand proudly" during the 'Star-Spangled Banner'.

The Miami Dolphins did not immediately return a request for comment. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. But the president took it one step further by threatening the players to either stand during the anthem or facing getting suspended without pay. "This organization obviously DOES NOT honor First Responders and the dangers they put themselves in every day". "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he said.

President Donald Trump criticized the players on Twitter.

"It just happened that way", Stills said after the game, via the New York Times, adding that he had the support of coach Adam Gase.

Mourinho: Wait to see if Man Utd can contend
I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies. "The team played as a team", Mourinho said. He continued, "I would get two more". "Paul was fantastic, his contribution was incredible but the fuel was disappearing".

Jordan was one of the several Saints players to sit during the anthem last season, and he also had talks with quarterback Drew Brees about promoting social justice, TMZ reports.

An increasing number of players joined him, but critics perceived the protests as unpatriotic and disrespectful of the American flag and USA military.

While Trump may not be able to suspend National Football League players, we guarantee he'll continue tweeting about the issue throughout the entire season so he can distract his racist fans from seeing how much of a dumpster fire his administration has been.

Soon more players began to kneel during the anthem, and the controversy in the most popular sports league in America became a partisan talking point.

Trump took notice of a small number of players who protested during the anthem in various ways. "Stay strong brothers!" the tweet read.
