Trump urged fans to boycott football because of the racist scandal


The US President Donald trump on Twitter encouraged viewers of American football in the National football League (NFL) to boycott the competition. This step, according to trump, will force athletes to stop protest on the topics of the day.

“If NFL fans refuse to attend games until players stop disrespecting our flag and country, you will see rapid change,” added trump.

Conflict of trump with the NFL began after the riots on racial issue in Charlottesville. The players pointedly got on his knees during the performance of the national anthem of the United States – according to their idea, it was supposed to symbolize inequality between the races, stretching from the time of slavery. Trump then criticized the players, saying they did not want to see them in the White house, even though it is a tradition every year to take the team that won the national championship.
