That hasn't stopped Trump from demanding he be suspended the rest of the season for his actions.

Lynch has sat during the national anthem for the entire NFL season so far, and even sported a shirt that read "Everybody vs. Trump" in October during the height of Trump's criticism. 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.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat during most of USA anthem and stood for the Mexican anthem before their game against the Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. On Monday morning, Trump took to Twitter to blast the decision.

On Sunday during a game against the New England Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, Lynch sat for most of the USA national anthem, according to The Associated Press.

"Next time National Football League should suspend him for remainder of season". Generally, though, he has avoided singling out players by name. 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. On Sunday, he wore cleats with a Mexican flag theme. Giant flags of both nations were unfurled to cheers of the crowd, which included a significant number of Americans.

Lynch has not stood for "The Star-Spangled Banner" since he came out of retirement to play with the Raiders.

He was hit hard by Wisconsin linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel after releasing a third-down pass and needed to be carted off the field. For a team that has earned its reputation as reliable and boring this year, No. 5 Wisconsin sure can flip a game in a hurry.

Mr Trump did not comment on their protest.

After Trump touted his role in getting UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill released from China after a shoplifting arrest earlier this month, Ball's outspoken father Lavar Ball downplayed Trump's role in the situation. "I should have left them in jail!"
