Trump wants NFL to make a rule against kneeling during the anthem.
Prior to last night's Monday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals, the entire Cowboys roster, including team owner Jerry Jones, locked arms and took a knee on the field right before the playing of the national anthem.
The Cowboys and Cardinals game wrapped up Week 3 of the NFL in which teams across the league kneeled, locked arms, or refused to go on the field altogether during the national anthem, as a show of unity in the wake of President Trump's comments about protesters.
Trump has called on owners to fire the "son of a bitch" players who kneel during the anthem, and he has now called on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to institute a rule outlawing players from kneeling.
During last night's Monday Night Football broadcast, Trump sent several tweets regarding the anthem protests, including:
"The NFL has all sorts of rules and regulations. The only way out for them is to set a rule that you can't kneel during our National Anthem!"
"The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard. Great anger"
