Many Baltimore Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens players take a knee in the national anthem. Others locked arms or put their hands on teammates’ backs.

Most recently Trump continued to stir the pot:

President Trump Friday attacked pro football players who don’t stand during the national anthem – and urged team owners to remove those silent protesters from the field at a campaign rally in Huntsville on Friday, according to the NY Post.

He continued, saying that he wishes NFL suits would take a harder stance against players who take a knee during the national anthem.

Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners when someone disrespects our flag to say, `Get that son of a bitch off the field right now! Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!”
