Trump then attempted to threaten a boycott if players did not stand during the national anthem.

The move drew criticism from Trump and fans, with accusations that the protesting players were disrespecting the national anthem and the USA military.

It is meant to call attention to what the protesting players see as a pattern of racism in the treatment of African-Americans by United States police. In his off-the-cuff speech, Trump criticized any NFL player who decide to take a knee while the national anthem is performed.

Roger Goodell of National Football League just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand!

The game kicks off at 9:30 a.m. on Fox Sports. "That's frustrating, and we didn't score any points so that sucks even more".
