Donald Trump has once again took to Twitter to drag the NFL and its team owners for not putting their players in check.
The NFL had their annual Fall meeting, and of course the National Anthem protesting initiated by Colin Kaepernick last year was on the top of the agenda. Although Kaepernick was not present at the meeting, the league concluded that they wouldn’t force players to stand up for the National Anthem. Donald is PISSED about the conclusion. He has yet to respond to Eminem’s diss, but he definitely put his Twitter fingers to use and addressed the NFL’s resolution.
The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem. Total disrespect for our great country!

Although this is a favorable solution to the brave players, this may not change much. Diddy, Joey Bada$$, and Master P are urging for the creation of another football league for players to be themselves. Kaepernick recently filed a grievance against the NFL, alleging that league’s owners colluded to keep him out of the league because of his protest actions during the national anthem. The grievance also alleges that the league deprived him of employment opportunities for using his platform to advocate for social injustices.
