Donald Trump: Raiders’ Marshawn Lynch disrespected our Anthem!


Early Monday morning, Trump set his sights specifically on Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch, who has joined other NFL players in challenging amid The Star Spangled Banner this season, sat down by and by amid the playing of the U.S. national song of praise before the Raiders’ diversion against New England, which occurred in Mexico City. Yet, when Mexico’s song of devotion played, Lynch got ready.

Trump paid heed and called for Lynch to be suspended for his activities.

“Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for the remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Lynch has remained seated for the national anthem all season, according to the Associated Press. He was suspended for one game earlier this season for making contact with an official after running on the field during a skirmish in a game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 19.
