America is 'fed up' with NFL national anthem protests

  • Seattle Seahawks players sit and kneel during the playing of the national anthem before an NFL football game against the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara Calif. President Donald Trump is renewing his

Just hours after Monday Night Football, Trump slammed the NFL on Twitter for being "out of control".

The national anthem protest started at the beginning of the 2016-17 season and even though it lost some steam along the way, some players are still kneeling for the national anthem in week 12 of the following season. "Weak and out of control!".

President Trump took a jab Tuesday at the NFL's declining viewership after a week in which television ratings were down but the number of players refusing to stand for the national anthem was up.

"At least 24 football players have landed the knee on the floor in the stadiums of the NFL this weekend, buildings that are becoming more and more hard to fill, he wrote on his Twitter account".

Trump's tweets, of course, could have played a role in the declining popularity. Trump says the act is disrespectful and is hurting the game.

This was the first time he spoke on the league since he blasted Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch for sitting during the National Anthem, but standing for the Mexican Anthem during a game in Mexico.

As a result, ratings have plummeted, the league has become one of the most divisive brands in the country, and viewership on Thanksgiving dropped double digits from a year ago.
