Donald Trump's presidency has featured plenty of debate. Now, things have reached the football field.
Among the main topics of conversation this season has been the increased protests from players during the National Anthem. Some sit, some kneel. And according to President Trump, this is completely distasteful.
He made this more than clear tonight during a speech.

This is sure to cause a stir among NFL players and politicians. Many have voiced their displeasure with the anthem protests, while others seem to be in favor.
