Trump chides NFL for not forcing players to stand for anthem

Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday criticized the National Football League for not forcing its players to stand during pre-game renditions of the U.S. national anthem, furthering his feud with the nation's most popular sports league.

 

Trump's comments come after the NFL on Tuesday said it has not sought commitments from players to stop kneeling during the anthem, instead pledging to work with them on social justice issues.
