Trump Just Urged NFL Commissioner To Kick Players Off Their Teams With No Pay If They Kneel During Anthem

Donald Trump is at it again with his attack on NFL players who kneel during the national anthem. On Friday, he called on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to further punish players who decide to kneel in protest during the national anthem.

As the NFL season approaches, Trump took to Twitter to claim that fining players for kneeling isn’t enough. He believes that they should get cut for the whole season without pay as well.

Trump tweeted out:

“The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again – can’t believe it! Isn’t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand. First time kneeling, out for game. Second time kneeling, out for season/no pay!”

Trump’s tweet came a day after the league announced that it would freeze its newly implemented policy requiring players to remain standing while the anthem played at games.

The policy was put on hold after the league face backlash from players who argued against it.

“In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA’s grievance and on the NFL’s anthem policy,” a statement from the NFL read. “No new rules relating to the anthem will be issued or enforced for the next several weeks while these confidential discussions are ongoing.”

“The NFL and NFLPA reflect the great values of America, which are repeatedly demonstrated by the many players doing extraordinary work in communities across our country to promote equality, fairness and justice,” the statement continued. “Our shared focus will remain on finding a solution to the anthem issue through mutual, good faith commitments, outside of litigation.”
