The protesting had started during the "The Star-Spangled Banner" playing last season when football quarterback "Colin Kaepernick" didn't stand as his way to bring attention to police treatment of blacks and social injustice.
Afterwards, Trump made a speech September 22nd in Alabama to fire the players who were apart of the protesting started by Colin.
