President Trump suggests a penalty for NFL players who protest during the national anthem, as he blasts the league over its policy flip-flop.
In a fiery tweet Friday, the president said the national anthem debate is alive and well again and questions if it’s in a player’s contract that they must stand for the anthem.
He also calls on commissioner Roger Goodell to take a stand on the issue.
The president gave his own opinion on how the league should handle player protests, saying first time kneelers are out for the game and second time kneelers are out for the season without pay.
This comes after the league paused its new policy penalizing players for protesting, after the Miami Dolphins received backlash over its stance on the issue.
