President Donald Trump on Monday praised football fans who booed NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem on Sunday, as he continued for a fourth day his campaign to pressure team owners on the issue.
“These are fans who demand respect for our Flag!” Trump said in a series of morning tweets, also asserting that only a “small percentage” of players knelt.
“Many people booed the players who kneeled yesterday (which was a small percentage of total). These are fans who demand respect for our Flag!”
