(AmericanProsperity.com) – On Saturday, June 13, President Trump clearly opposed the US Soccer and the NFL’s decisions to remove rules mandating players stand during the National Anthem. He tweeted stating his direct opposition to these new guidelines.
And it looks like the NFL is heading in that direction also, but not with me watching! https://t.co/aGfBaK7RNA

The US Soccer Federation’s Board of Directors voted on June 9 to repeal Policy 604-1 which was added after player Megan Rapinoe had kneeled in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick in 2017. Meanwhile, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell released a video stating that the NFL stands with the Black Lives Matter movement and will support players in their peaceful protests.

Each of these stances goes directly against the US code stating that persons should stand with their hand over their heart when the National Anthem is sung. So, as these leagues begin to revamp in the coming months, Americans must choose whether or not to support them and their blatant disregard for the US flag and customs.
