President Donald Trump said that the NFL is “doing the right thing” with a policy passed on Wednesday banning kneeling during the national anthem.
Trump spoke to “Fox and Friends” for an interview that will air Thursday. The policy forbids players from sitting or taking a knee on the field during the anthem, but allows them to stay in the locker room. Any violation of the new rules would result in.
“I think that’s good,” Trump said in the interview that taped Wednesday. “I don’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it’s good. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem. Or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.”
