“Find another way to protest” – Trump chides NFL players again on National Anthem protests

This morning Trump has made the NFL protests that happened last night the topic of two of his four tweets.

Trump writes…

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……

…..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!

Here’s his tweets:

As much as I agree with Trump on this, I really wish he wouldn’t keep responding to players like this. He’s made himself abundantly clear on the issue and all he’s doing now is emboldening more players to protest during the National Anthem just because he told them not to. They will respond to him with more protests around the league and he will respond again to them and this never ending cycle stays alive.
