WASHINGTON - The unified demonstrations performed by NFL teams across the league during the national anthem have sparked strong opinions regarding President Donald Trump.
More than 200 NFL players performed some sort of demonstration at games on Sunday in reaction to President Trump’s comments during his speech last Friday in Alabama when he told the crowd, "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he's fired, he's fired."
The Washington Redskins linked arms on the sideline as the “Star-Spangled Banner” was performed before their Sunday night football game against the Oakland Raiders. Seven Redskins players also kneeled during the anthem.
After the game, Redskins cornerback Josh Norman did not mince words regarding Trump.
"One brother, you mess with one, you mess with us all," Norman said. "Nobody is divided in this. We were in unity, and we wanted to stand for something."
The Redskins star also added, “I’m just telling you right now, this man is not welcome here in Washington D.C. He’s not. I hope he won’t be around when I see him. He’s not welcome.”
FOX 5 asked the White House for a response to Norman’s postgame comments. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told us, “Well, 63 million people feel differently because they voted for him to be the President.”
