Donald Trump took to Twitter to call out disrespectful Marshawn Lynch after he kneeled for the US National Anthem but stood for the Mexican National Anthem.
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 remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.

It is important people realize that Donald Trump is not calling out Lynch for standing for the Mexican Anthem. He is, however, calling out Lynch for kneeling for the US National Anthem.
I stand by Trump and his calling for Lynch’s suspension. It is disrespectful enough for him to kneel during the United States National Anthem at home. It is even worse for him to do it in a foreign country. Marshawn Lynch’s actions are disgusting and he should be suspended for the rest of the season by the NFL.
