Trump targets Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch in Twitter rant

Trump targets Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch in Twitter rant

The Raiders played a home game in Mexico City on Sunday and Marshawn Lynch sat during the American national anthem, but Lynch stood during the Mexican national anthem.

Mr Lynch's demonstration came during a game against the New England Patriots in Mexico City.

Lynch, known to not speak to the media, will unlikely explain his actions.

Earlier this year, in the aftermath of the deadly violence that occurred at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the president called upon National Football League team owners to suspend players that refused to stand during the anthem during a fiery speech to his supporters. "Attendance and ratings way down", Trump said on his official Twitter account Monday morning.

Trump has encouraged the hands-off approach in the absence of any good options for getting involved, White House officials said. The former " Saturday Night Live " writer and cast member has been an outspoken critic of Trump's administration.

On Sunday during a game against the New England Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, Lynch sat for most of the US national anthem, according to The Associated Press. Engaging NFL players in that way is a direct violation of their first amendment protections - a freedom of expression which, like it or not, the president is supposed to defend, according to the oath of office Trump took at his inauguration.

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

"We've said that we would like to see everyone at our games stand for the anthem".

Lynch has yet to explain the reason behind his protests, but before a Week 4 game, he wore a shirt with the message, "Everybody vs. Trump", the Washington Post reported. Volin also noted that it is the "first time I've seen Lynch stand for the Mexican anthem", according to a November 19 tweet. While overseas, Trump reportedly asked Jinping to help with three UCLA basketball players' shoplifting incident. "I should have left them in jail!"
