Trump — players to NFL: «Stand proudly when the national anthem is played, or nothing!»

After the recent football games Donald trump erupted with criticism of athletes standing on the knees during the anthem. Some of the attacks of the President in Twitter turned out on the verge of threats.

National anthem — ceremonial an integral part of any sporting event. In may, the National football League (NFL) introduced a new rule: during the performance of the US national anthem, the athletes must stand on the floor or wait for it to end in the locker room. In anticipation of the next regular season, which opens in the first weekend of September, the atmosphere is tense to the limit. After yesterday’s games «let off steam» even the President.

The NFL players are at it again — taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love……

«The players of the NFL again — during the national anthem kneel, while we should be proud to stand. A lot of players from different teams do not understand, protesting against what. They should be happy doing what you love».

Following the tweet, the President was still «hotter»:

…..Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!

«Be happy, be cool! Game, for which fans took away so much money to watch and enjoy, is not a place for protest. In any case, players get usedonmost of this money. Find another place to protest. Stand proudly, [when] the national anthem, or you’ll be left with nothing!»

Warning fines and other sanctions impressions on the athletes is not produced, because between the leadership of the NFL and football clubs earlier, an agreement was reached. However, the violent reaction of the President should have an effect. Previously, trump has stated that if a player can’t stand during the national anthem, then he has no place on the field and even «the country».

For the first time athletes have knelt during the anthem at the beginning of the previous season NFL games.
