Jack Del Rio Talks Donald Trump's Tweet About Marshawn Lynch, Wife's Response

Before the Raiders' game against the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday, Lynch went about sitting as usual during the national anthem.

Imagine being told a few years ago that in 2017 Marshawn Lynch's mother would be trolling President Donald Trump for saying her son should be suspended over not standing for the national anthem. "Attendance and ratings way down", Trump concluded. The movement he spearheaded has continued this season with some players choosing to kneel or raise fists during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner".

Marshawn's mom, Delisa Lynch, responded to Trump on Twitter, making fun of the president's failed bid to buy the Buffalo Bills in 2014. "Oh yeah, they wouldn't let him have one". The former 49ers quarterback took a knee to protest against police violence, specifically against African-Americans and people of color.

Trump has been relentless in attacking NFL players for their national anthem protests.

On Sunday he lashed out against three college basketball players, who were released by Chinese authorities after intervention from Mr Trump.

Donald Trump, Marcus Peters would like a word with you.

Durbin says Trump is adept at using his Twitter account "to disrupt conversation and direct it in ways that benefit him". "He's fired!'" the President said during a rally in Alabama.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said that the league believes "everyone should stand for the national anthem" but would not change its policies to force players to do so.
