Trump 'proud of NASCAR' for no protests
LOUDON, N.H. (AP) President Donald Trump said Monday that he he was proud of NASCAR because no drivers, crew or other team members protested during the national anthem prior to a weekend race at New Hampshire Motorspeedway.
"So proud of NASCAR and its supporters and fans. They won't put up with disrespecting our Country or our Flag - they said it loud and clear!" Trump tweeted Monday.
The comments came one day after dozens of NFL players took a knee or otherwise protested during anthems across the country in the wake of Trump suggesting teams could fire them for the gesture, which began last year as a way to raise the focus on social injustice.
