Trump Has a Message for All NFL Players Before Sunday’s Game — And It’s Causing a Firestorm

Sunday and Monday culminated in the largest NFL protests yet.

More than 200 players protested during the national anthem, and their demonstrations drew a negative reaction from many.

While the Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos announced plans to stand for the anthem, it’s anyone’s guess what other teams might do.

President Donald Trump made a suggestion for the NFL, via Twitter, on Saturday night.

Trump tweeted:

While there were criticisms of Trump’s tweet, many were happy that he said it:

There are 14 NFL games on Sunday. Time will tell if players who planned to take a knee before decided to instead heed the president’s advice.
