NFL players reject Trump’s intimidation tactics, expand anthem protest

Like Tweet Pin it Share Share Email

Sunday morning, Trump continued his intimidation campaign against NFL players. On Twitter, Trump said that players that kneel during the national anthem, a silent protest against racism, should be fired.

The protests were started by quarterback Colin Kaepernick prior to the 2016 season. Despite possessing superior talent to many QBs on NFL rosters, Kaepernick has not been signed by a team this season.

In a speech in Alabama on Friday, Trump said any player that protests racism during the national anthem was a “son of a bitch.”

NFL players, however, do not appear to be intimidated. In a game played in London between the Baltimore Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars, that aired at 9:30 a.m. on the east coast, numerous players can be seen kneeling.

Others who did not kneel locked arms in an apparent show of support. Among those linking arms was Shahid Khan, Jacksonville’s owner and the only non-white owner in the league.
