US President Donald J. Trump travels to North Carolina for a pair of fund raising events

On Sunday, Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones made it clear to reporters that any of his players on the roster that kneel or takes part in any type of protest during the Anthem will be benched and won’t play in the game at all.

He became the first owner to implement such a rule, but certainly not the last.

“If there’s anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play. Smith also said that “no player is disrespecting our country or our flag” by protesting during the national anthem.

During Monday Night Football, his friend and President Donald Trump took to Twitter and praised Jones for threatening his players an forcing them to bring an end to the kneeling.
