On Friday night President Trump declared war on all NFL players who kneel during the national anthem. The athletes told him to back off. The league told him to back off. The media told. Celebrities told him to back off. But what did he do? He hit back harder!
Early this morning, at the crack of dawn, the President got out of bed, grabbed his trusty phone, and let the world know that NFL fans should STOP going to the games until they respect the flag AND they should fire or suspend anyone who breaks the rule.
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!

Those are some VERY harsh words from the President, who has never hidden his feelings about athletes kneeling during the national anthem. He has made it clear that protest is fine (just look around the country), but disrespecting those who have given their lives for our great nation to do it is now.
Look, the president is not trying to arrest these athletes. They didn’t break the law. He is also not punishing the teams who defend them since they have EVERY right to do so. He is simply voicing his opinion that it should be taken more seriously.
Just like the President, each and every one of you is entitled to voice that opinion thanks to the First Amendment. So tell us what you think. Should the NFL suspend or fire these athletes or should they be allowed to kneel during the national anthem? Oh, and help spread this everywhere. 😉
