President Trump Praises NFL Owners For New National Anthem Policy

Two prominent Seahawks on Wednesday joined the rising chorus of NFL players who expressed dismay over the league's new policy regarding the national anthem during separate local radio interviews.

President Donald Trump speaks to the media before boarding the Marine One helicopter on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, May 23, 2018.

The changes are the latest development in a polarizing debate that began with Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the anthem in 2016. The new rules, which were announced by Commissioner Roger Goodell, require any players on the field to stand in respect.

You knew this was coming: President Donald Trump, whose fiery comments on National Football League protesters past year inflamed his populist base, spoke with satisfaction Thursday morning about new rules that sharply restrict pregame protests.

President Donald Trump has commented on the NFL's new rule against U.S. national-anthem protests, giving it his broad support and suggesting that players seeking to protest during the anthem should perhaps leave the US. Trump suggested that allowing players to stay in the locker rooms might have even been too lenient.

Postal Service issued a statement to CBS2 in which it said that the alleged package in question was not delivered by USPS. By mid-afternoon, officials said they did not believe there was any further threat to the community.

Trump has derided players and team owners for the kneeling protests on multiple occasions, sparking a debate as to whether the protests were disrespectful of the USA military or an expression of First Amendment rights. Without full funding, Trump said, he will not sign off on any legislation aimed at preserving the Obama-era DACA program, which provided temporary legal status to thousands of people brought to the country illegally as minors.

It will also be interesting to see if any players continue to protest.

Members of the New England Patriots kneel on the sidelines as the National Anthem is played before the game against the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium on September 24, 2017.

But the policy came under fire from some critics who say it infringes on players' First Amendment rights. This especially is the case if that man is Donald Trump, even that he hasn't been in the office for a long time, he is already known for his, sometimes hard to understand, behavior.

"The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this 'policy, ' the statement said".
