        Free Speech and Trump’s Reaction to NFL Protesters | PBS NewsHour

        President Donald Trump’s comments that professional football players should be fired if they kneel during the national anthem have ignited condemnation from players, coaches and owners of three major sports. Trump took aim at the players during a rally in Alabama on September 22, 2017. The NFL’s Colin Kaepernick was the first to kneel during the anthem last year as a protest against police brutality.

        September 25, 2017 video and resource materials from PBS NewsHour.
