Trump reignites feud with NFL players after athletes resume protests during national anthem


President Donald Trump reignited his feud with the National Football League on Friday, blasting football players who knelt or raised a fist during the national anthem Thursday night before suggesting that they didn’t know what they were protesting.

“The NFL players are at it again — taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem,” Trump tweeted. “Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their ‘outrage’ at something that most of them are unable to define.”
