Last week, President Trump commented about the increasingly common national anthem protests taking place at NFL games. He suggested that players participating in these protests should be fired. Over the weekend, many NFL players decided to directly combat the president's words by making their protests even more dramatic. 

Many football players took a knee during the national anthem before their games, and some teams even stayed in their locker rooms during the song. On Monday morning, President Trump took to Twitter to speak out once again about the protests.

He said that athletes should respect the country and the National Anthem. He also commended NASCAR for their decision to support the country no matter what.

Later in the morning, President Trump tweeted the hashtag, "#StandForOurAnthem." He then retweeted a photo of a former NFL player and veteran who was killed in combat in 2004.
