'Stand for National Anthem' Petition Started by Trump

'Stand for National Anthem' Petition Started by Trump”

The petition comes just one day after Trump criticized the National Football League for not passing a rule that would penalize players who don't stand for the anthem.

Goodell also said there were only "six or seven" players protesting.

"The President has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the National Anthem. Add your name below to show your patriotism and support", said the petition issued on Thursday by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee. It did not indicate how many signatures had been received.

His continued unemployment is believed by many to be a result of NFL owners colluding to keep him out of the league because of his political stance, and Kaepernick has even filed a grievance against the league for the alleged collusion.

Trump has been attacking NFL players for silently protesting the killing of Black people by police, along with protesting racial oppression and inequality by "taking a knee" instead of standing during the playing of the National Anthem. "It's an important part of the game".

The petition came days after NFL team owners, executives and players met in NY, where they decided that the league would not implement a rule forcing players to stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner".

The N.F.L. for now will continue to let players kneel or sit during the national anthem without a penalty, capitulating to demands by the athletes for free expression but potentially further alienating fans who object to the protests and feel they are disrespectful to the flag and the military.

"I think our clubs all see this the same way - we want our players to stand, we're going to encourage them to stand and we're going to continue to work on these issues in the community", Goodell said Wednesday.

It was released the day after Trump criticized the league for not enacting a rule that would punish players who knelt during the national anthem.
