US President Donald Trump has urged the NFL to suspend a player who stood for Mexico's national anthem but protested during the Star-Spangled Banner.

Trump was bothered by Lynch's actions before Sunday's 33-8 loss to the New England Patriots at Estadio Azteca.

Lynch, known to not speak to the media, will unlikely explain his actions.

President Donald Trump is continuing his sharp criticism of NFL players who protest racial disparities in society, specifically at the hands of law enforcement and within the justice system itself, by kneeling during the national anthem. "Attendance and ratings way down", the president tweeted.

Some NFL players also kneeled for the national anthem but stood for "God Save the Queen" during games played in London - but Trump did not address the matter then, according to NBC Sports.

Morrissey Defends Kevin Spacey; Says The Actor Is Being 'Attacked Unnecessarily'
Since Rapp named Spacey (Rapp had previously discussed the incident), multiple men have revealed their "me too" stories. Morrissey has condemned the decision to re-cast Kevin Spacey in a film following allegations of sexual misconduct.

On a press call about extending National Football League games in Mexico through 2021, National Football League communications vice presidents Joe Lockhart and Mike Signora were asked about the tweet.

"[Lynch] said, 'This is something I've done for 11 years", Del Rio stated. It read, "President Trump I voted for you, which I now regret". The only rule the NFL has regarding the national anthem is that players must be on the field for it. Supporters said that the demonstration was a peaceful protest against racial injustice, while critics asserted that it was disrespectful to US military service members and veterans.

Snoop Dogg responded to Trump, praising LaVar Ball and Lynch and lambasting Trump in an expletive-laced video, TMZ reported Monday.

On Sunday Trump tweeted out that he should have left three college basketball players to sit in jail cells in China after being arrested for shoplifting. While overseas, Trump reportedly asked Jinping to help with three UCLA basketball players' shoplifting incident.
