Trump Praises Dallas Cowboys for Standing During National Anthem: ‘Big Progress Being Made’

President Donald Trump praised the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday for rising for the national anthem before their Monday night game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Since saying Friday that players who don't stand for the national anthem should be fired from their teams, Trump has tweeted repeatedly about the issue, saying the league should require them to stand and demanding they respect the American flag.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and the rest of the team knelt together before the anthem in solidarity with teams that protested across the league on Sunday in response to Trump's remarks. The initial gesture drew boos from the crowd in Phoenix.

I'm with Trump on this! If they don't have enough respect for our country to stand during the Anthem, then to hell with them. They need to be let go. Practically every country in the world has an anthem which their people honor. Are the cowboys (not men) up or down.? How can they be both? I ain't gettin' it!
