Back in the United States, President Trump has once again called for NFL players who take a knee during the playing of the national anthem to be punished. On Friday, Trump tweeted that players “must stand at attention, hand on heart,” calling out NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell over his $40 million annual salary and demanding, “First time kneeling, out for game. Second time kneeling, out for season/no pay!” Over the past two seasons, dozens of players have knelt during the anthem to protest police shootings of unarmed black men.
