President Donald Trump praised an NFL policy banning kneeling during the “The Star-Spangled Banner,” saying that “maybe you shouldn’t be in the country” if you don’t stand for the anthem.

Trump spoke to “Fox & Friends” in an interview that aired Thursday. The policy forbids players from sitting or taking a knee on the field during the anthem but allows them to stay in the locker room. Any violations of the new rules would result in fines against teams.

    I agree 100% with our President. If you do not want to stand for our National Anthem, you should not be in our country. And if any Jacksonville Jaguar players stay in the locker room during the playing of our National Anthem, we should boycott the Jaguars. Jacksonville is a military town, they better remember that!!!!
