Donald Trump Thinks NFL Should Have Suspended Colin Kaepernick

"Freedom of speech is a right we have", Minor said.

NFL players and teams, high school football teams, the National Basketball Association, and some who performed the anthem participated in protest. This form of expression is undoubtedly protected by the First Amendment.

She hopes students receive more education about what happened to Native Americans with the arrival of settlers. One woman with a deep Monacan heritage says this recognition is a step in the right direction.

However, last weekend saw far fewer anthem protests, amid reports that several teams were telling their players to stand. Jones said Sunday that he would bench any Cowboys player who did not stand for the anthem, with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross asserting, "I think it's incumbent upon players today, if that's how the public is looking at it, is to stand and salute the flag". I do not see the act of kneeling during the anthem as a national crisis in which America needs to debate nonstop. And this has pissed off President Trump, because no week passes without him exploding in a litany of tweets, threatening the players. And in a newly released preview excerpt, the President once again took on Colin Kaepernick and the subject of National Football League protests.

Many NFL teams issued statements objecting to the president's comments, and some owners joined their players in linking arms while standing during the anthem.

He suggested a stronger punishment for kneeling a second time and a season-long suspension for a third offense.

The NFL and NFLPA issued a joint statement yesterday in response to Trump's tweet about the NFL taking action against protesting players. But despite that, I've been side-eyed for kneeling.

Many people are burning their jerseys, season tickets and demonizing everyone involved, and making it a much bigger issue.

Critics of Trump argued that the president's focus on the National Football League had taken attention away from the fact that four service members were killed in an ambush in Niger days earlier, reportedly by a jihadist group, according to Inquisitr. Puerto Rico is still devastated and victims in Las Vegas are still hurting. Trump makes a habit of bashing reporters and media outlets on Twitter, dismissing reports that reflect negatively on him as nothing more than "fake news". However, after both instances, sports and politics have started to mix, bringing about the controversial question of whether or not politics and sports should be intertwined, as well as if athletes have a certain responsibility to use their platforms to speak up for their beliefs.
