Trump releases petition for anthem standing: 'show patriotism'

Trump releases petition for anthem standing: 'show patriotism'

"Add your name below to show your patriotism and support", the petition reads before asking for your name, email and zip code.

The President also tweeted that he supports the NFL instituting a rule that players have to stand during the National Anthem. The Trump campaign team earlier this month offered supporters an "I STAND FOR THE FLAG" sticker in exchange for contributions of at least $5 to the committee, and Trump himself has frequently tweeted on the subject.

This week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell held a series of press conferences to attempt to stop the bleeding from the outcry over mass national anthem protests which have gripped the NFL. Trump has expanded his target to include National Football League owners who do not mandate their players stand. Trump, Vice President Pence, the RNC, and many conservatives have wrongly claimed the protests are meant to dishonor America, America's military, the American people, or the American flag. The petition is called the "Official Stand for the National Anthem Petition". He's now a free agent, and has filed a grievance against team owners saying they colluded to keep him from being signed.

Goodell said he understood the concerns of the players - who are seeking to draw attention to racial injustice and police brutality - but he hopes the league can bring the total number of protesters down to zero.

The toss of PAK vs SL 3rd ODI will take place half an hour prior to the first ball - 4:00 PM IST. Gurusinha said SLC would be in touch with the players to assuage their fears.

Trump has harshly criticized players who refuse to stand for the anthem, previously stating at a rally in late September owners need to "get that son of a bitch off the field". It alienates too many patriotic people of good will who bristle at what they perceive as disrespect of the country's basic symbols.

The comment that only "six or seven players" were involved in the protest struck many as curious. It's unclear what Trump or the committee will do with the list of petition supporters.
