Trump: It’s OK For Black Athletes To lock-Arms But Kneeling Is ‘Not Acceptable’


Donald Trump took to his Twitter account to tell everyone what is an acceptable way for African-Americans to protest and what is not. While facing a massive backlash over his comments on black football players taking a knee during the national anthem to silently protest against racial inequality and police brutality, the former reality show star tweeted that locking arms is acceptable and kneeling is not.

“Great solidarity for our National Anthem and for our Country,” Trump tweeted. “Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings!”

Apparently, the Trump supporting Nazis who stormed the streets of Charlottesville, N.C. while yelling “Blood and soil,” a Nazi-era slogan, is acceptable, but black athletes kneeling is not. We’re starting to see a pattern here with Donald Trump. The members of the NFL who locked arms today were expressing solidarity with those who were kneeling and with each other following the so-called president’s attacks. After Trump used his rally speech in Alabama to blast ‘sons of bitches’ who kneel, he woke up this morning only to launch another attack on the NFL.

Trump’s tweet was referring to the NFL players who locked arms on Sunday as others kneeled in response to his attack on players in the league over the weekend.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now,’” Trump said while stumping for Luther Strange (R) at a rally in deep red Alabama. “‘He is fired.’”
