Trump Calls on National Football League to Suspend Raiders' RB, Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch

Donald Trump has turned his sights on BeastMode - blasting the NFL star for sitting during the US national anthem - but standing for the Mexican national anthem - during his game this weekend.

He then stood for the Mexican national anthem.

"Great disrespect!" Mr Trump tweeted, adding: "Next time National Football League should suspend him for remainder of season".

Just this morning, the President tweeted about the running back. He stood instead for the Mexican anthem.

The Raiders played the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday and stood for the Mexican national anthem. Meanwhile, Trump has made it a pattern to rip NFL players when possible regarding their national anthem protests, making Monday's latest rant not surprising in the least.

The veteran running back has yet to explain why he regularly sits for "The Star-Spangled Banner", while other players have described their refusal to stand for the anthem as a protest against the deaths of black men at the hands of police.

Linda Del Rio, wife of Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio, responded to Trump's criticism, saying she regrets voting for him. I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem, but I'm going to respect you as a man.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the controversy previous year by first sitting then kneeling during the national anthem. He previously has slammed players who knelt for disrespecting the military.

Donald Trump continues to add names to his list of pro-athletes who protest the national anthem for a cause bigger than the song's lyrics. "Out! He's fired. He's fired!"
