President Trump has renewed his commitment to honor the national anthem. Fox News reports:
President Trump on Friday mocked NFL players who were “at it again,” kneeling during the national anthem, and encouraged them to “Be happy, be cool!” since they make a “fortune doing what they love.”
Trump once again warned players to “Stand proudly” for the national anthem, or “be suspended Without Pay!”
“The NFL players are at it again –taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their ‘outrage’ at something that most of them are unable to define,” Trump tweeted.
“They make a fortune doing what they love…Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. Most of the money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!”
Whether the NFL will heed his advice remains to be seen.
