Trump takes stand against National Football League kneelers

Trump has been attacking NFL players for silently protesting the killing of Black people by police, along with protesting racial oppression and inequality by "taking a knee" instead of standing during the playing of the National Anthem.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence released a petition demanding all players and fans to stand for the national anthem.

"The President has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the National Anthem", the Trump/Pence campaign website said on Thursday.

Trump has expanded his target to include National Football League owners who do not mandate their players stand. Trump, Vice President Pence, the RNC, and many conservatives have wrongly claimed the protests are meant to dishonor America, America's military, the American people, or the American flag.

His continued unemployment is believed by many to be a result of NFL owners colluding to keep him out of the league because of his political stance, and Kaepernick has even filed a grievance against the league for the alleged collusion. We're going to continue to encourage them to stand.

Trump tweeted his disapproval of the decision.

"Too much talk, not enough action", he wrote, referring to the league, in a Twitter post on Wednesday afternoon. "NFL executives and owners joined NFLPA executives and player leaders to review and discuss plans to utilize our platform to promote equality and effectuate positive change", the statement said. I think we also have to keep focus on this - we have about six or seven players that are involved with this protest at this point. The demonstrations began past year with former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been unable to find a new team after leaving the 49ers.
