Donald Trump Threatens to Suspend Protesting NFL Players Even Though He Can't

CNN host Jake Tapper said that President TrumpDonald John TrumpKobach agrees to recuse himself from vote counting in Kansas GOP primary NFL players kneel during national anthem before first preseason game Schiff blasts GOP for Russian Federation probe conduct: "That's how you obstruct an investigation, not how you conduct one" MORE is "once again" doing "the opposite of trying to bring us together" hours after Trump renewed attacks on NFL players who protest during the national anthem without also speaking out against this weekend's "Unite the Right 2" rally.

A Broward County police union is calling for its members to return their Miami Dolphins tickets after some players protested during the national anthem at a preseason game this week.

Trump has attacked those kinds of protests for more than a year, even going so far as to say that players who do not stand for the national anthem "maybe shouldn't be in the country", the NBC News reported. But the president took it one step further by threatening the players to either stand during the anthem or facing getting suspended without pay. But after teams actually began instituting policies to fine players for kneeling, outrage led to the NFL suspending that policy and they're still working with the NFL Player's Association to determine the best course or action.

On Thursday before the Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers faced off in a preseason game at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled while other players raised their fists in the air. Stills suggested the league start by with employing Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, the two players who started the movement to protest police brutality and racial and social injustice by kneeling during the anthem.

However, the National Football League changed course last month and said players wouldn't be penalized, putting their new policy on hold.
