The president called out the veteran NFL RB on Twitter.
Trump has once again taken to Twitter to air his grievances with an athlete.
Early Monday morning, President Trump tweeted his disapproval of Marshawn Lynch’s actions, after photos surfaced of the Oakland Raiders running back standing during the Mexican national anthem and sitting during the U.S. national anthem.

Trump was not pleased.
Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.

Trump has strongly opposed the NFL’s decision to allow athletes to kneel during the anthem this season, going as far as to demand the league to suspended players who choose to protest in this manner.
