Donald Trump Wants Marshawn Lynch Suspended For Kneeling During National Anthem

Oakland Raiders star running back Marshawn Lynch became the latest National Football League player to get an angry tweet from the commander-in-chief on Sunday. Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem's playing in 2016 and drew widespread attention for what he called an effort to bring attention to racial injustice. Lynch has sat during the anthem before every game this season, according to ESPN.

This came after the Boston Globe's Ben Volin reported during the Raiders-Patriots game in Mexico City that Lynch stood for the Mexican national anthem, but sat for the USA anthem.

During an NFL game last month at Wembley Stadium in London, three players from the Miami Dolphins "took the knee" during the USA national anthem, but rose for God Save the Queen. "Great disrespect!" Trump tweeted.

Peters has been protesting during the anthem this season as well, and the Star said Peters also tweeted that he wasn't trying to be disrespectful and he really did want to talk to Trump.

Trump attacks Raiders' Marshawn Lynch for standing for Mexican anthem, sitting for US anthem

Marshawn Lynch #24 of the Oakland Raiders warms up during a game against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium on November 5, 2017 in Miami Gardens, Florida. Apparently angry that Ball had played down Trump's role in the players' release, the president went so far as to suggest that they should have been left in a Chinese prison. Three additional players raised their fists in the air while standing for the anthem and a handful of others linked arms in support.

It wasn't the only sports-related feud Trump was involved in from over the weekend. Several players from both teams knelt during the US anthem but rose for "God Save the Queen", according to the Washington Post. "Yes he is generous in the community but no protesting on foreign soil".

Trump made no comments specifically about Jaguars players at the time.
