Trump Slams Marshawn Lynch for Standing Only for Mexican Anthem

Trump calls on NFL to suspend Raiders Marshawn Lynch

Donald Trump resumed his attacks against players who kneel during the national anthem, this time targeting Marshawn Lynch, who did so this weekend in Mexico.

The Raiders were in Mexico City to play the New England Patriots, who won 33-8.

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

Lynch has not stood during the national anthem before any game this season, according to The Associated Press. "Attendance and ratings way down", he said.

Lynch stood during the Mexican national anthem. Taking advantage of the expanded character limits since then, Trump didn't hold back his opinion, and said the National Football League should "suspend [Lynch] for the remainder of the season".

According to ESPN, he was standing on the Raiders' sideline when the American anthem began, then took a seat "a few bars" into the song.

"F**k Donald Trump. B***h...they should suspend your dumb ass".

Linda Del Rio, wife of Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio, responded to Trump's criticism, saying she regrets voting for him.

Said G.I. Raider: "How bout let's suspend you for handing the Raiders to Las Vegas?"

The tweet marked the latest installment in Trump's vendetta against the NFL players who have elected to kneel during the national anthem in peaceful protest of the police brutality that disproportionately affects people of color in America.

Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was in his crosshairs early Monday morning. "Out! He's fired. He's fired!"

"Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal".

On Sunday Trump tweeted out that he should have left three college basketball players to sit in jail cells in China after being arrested for shoplifting.
