Trump says protesting NFL players should ‘be cool’

President Trump again lashed out at NFL players who refuse to stand for the national anthem.

Trump on Friday said that “most of them are unable to define” what they’re demonstrating against.

Instead, Trump said players should “Be happy, be cool!”

Numerous player demonstrations took place during the national anthem at several early NFL preseason games Thursday night. Players have been protesting police killings of black men, social injustice and racism.

Trump tweeted that players “make a fortune doing what they love” and that those who refuse to stand “proudly” for the anthem should be suspended without pay.
