Protests sweep NFL as Trump doubles down on criticism

Protests sweep NFL as Trump doubles down on criticism | 24 Sept 2017 | Players across the National Football League (NFL) on Sunday demonstrated in the wake of President Trump's attacks on athletes kneeling during the national anthem. The Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins closed off the day of protests, with nearly every Raiders player remaining on the bench during the opening anthem. Redskins owner Dan Snyder, meanwhile, stood arm in arm with some players on his team as others knelt. Throughout the day, other teams showed their defiance against a president who on Friday said players who knelt during the anthem should be removed from the field.
