Are NFL football players required to stand for the National Anthem — VERIFY

When asked if he can trust Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Trump responded, "it's not a question of trust". And Trump is tweeting about TV ratings?

That was certainly never more true than on Sunday.

CBS Corp said overall viewership of games it broadcast on Sunday was up 4 percent from last year and 1 percent from last week. Having the ability to demonstrate one's dissent and protest is fundamental to our rights as citizens, as it is guaranteed to us in the First Amendment.

Donald Trump has said he supports a peaceful protest because it's an American's right... After Sunday's display of protest, it appears that viewership is in decline.

Trump set off a firestorm in the sports world Friday when he condemned the "son of a bitch" NFL players who don't stand for the national anthem, saying they should be fired.

"You know, some owner's gonna do that".

The other is the NFL's game operations manual, which details how the games are run, including rules regarding the national anthem.

What we need now is numbers. Kaepernick originally began kneeling to protest the lack of equality and police brutality in the United States as racial tensions are high.

For one thing, there are now too many of them.

"Whatever stance you decided to make or if you want to stand for the anthem and you want to put your hand over your heart and go along, that's fine, that's okay", Thomas said. Brandon Marshall's Project Borderline foundation combats mental illness.

Fourth, Trumps pathetic attempt to endear himself to his base by shared white grievance has not succeeded. "On top of that, due to the protests, Americans are watching less football and that trend will continue as long as the protests do". "You may not be interested in politics, but politics is surely interested in you". And in 2016, it lost the presidency. Kaepernick remains unemployed and no one will admit exactly why, though suspicions abound.

A number of sports players and teams demonstrated during the US national anthem over the weekend. It doesn't protect anyone from their employer, and every NFL player is subject to "conduct" clauses.

Kaepernick and Curry make no mention of that dismal statistic. What about their "freedom of expression?"

Villanueva jerseys and other apparel have outsold those of all other players in the past 24 hours, said a spokesman for online retailer Fanatics, which operates The source of the tune-out: NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem. "It's really caught on", Trump said of his NFL comments to attendees at the dinner, according to someone who attended. The Jacksonville Jaguars all linked arms in unity and their owner Shad Khan joined in the line. "Not the same game anymore, anyway". "Not at all. Not at all".

Whereas his predecessor Jurgen Klinsmann said he would let his players make their own decision with regards to the national anthem, current USMNT coach Bruce Arena expects them to observe it standing. On teams that did come out, some players stood linking arms, some knelt. Players from the Bears, Bengals, Bills, Broncos, Browns, Chargers, Chiefs, Dolphins, Eagles, Falcons, Jaguars, Packers, Patriots, Ravens, Seahawks, Steelers, Titans and Vikings all protested in some form.

Trump later insisted his comments have "nothing to do with race", although a majority of the players who would be affected are black, while most team owners are white. Statements were issued from 14 owners, from the NFL commissioner.
