If I were President I would react in exactly the same way as President Trump. The flag of the United States of America is a symbol of all the Nation has endured, fought for and died for.
If you do not agree with a Government Policy or action then you should do something about it instead of making pointless and ineffective ‘look at me’ gestures.
I am the last person on this Planet to give Governments who do not answer to the needs of the people any support.
But what has not standing for the National Anthem got to do with racial injustice?
The NFL players should do something about racial injustice instead of insulting all those who died fighting to protect the Country they enjoy.

I see it as the President weighing in on a matter of national interest and concern. That, unlike his lamentable predecessor’s uncontrollable fixation on interjecting himself into local issues, is quite presidential.
