Donald Trump is tweeting about Marshawn Lynch sitting during the US nation anthem

Marshawn Lynch — as he’s done for the duration of the NFL season — sat for the national anthem prior to the Raiders’ game against the Patriots in Mexico City.

However, Lynch stood for the Mexican national anthem.

Lynch initially sat for the anthem in his first preseason game back since coming out of retirement. He followed in the footsteps of Colin Kaepernick, who started sitting for the anthem, before ultimately taking a knee for the duration of the 2016 season.

He was supportive of Kaepernick’s movement in an appearance on Conan in Sept. 2016:

“I’d rather see him take a knee than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered,” Lynch said. “So, I mean, my take on it is [expletive]’s got to start somewhere, and if that was the starting point — I just hope people open up their eyes to see there’s really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop. And I mean, if you’re really not racist, then you’re going to see what he’s done, what he’s doing, [not] as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have.”

Players who have taken a knee or sat during the national anthem the past two seasons have done so
