Donald Trump 'so proud of NASCAR' for stance on protests during anthem

For the third consecutive day, President Donald Trump woke up Monday with sports on his mind.

While Trump has repeatedly criticized the NFL and its players the last few days for protesting during the national anthem, he had nothing but praise for NASCAR on Monday.

Multiple racing team owners said over the weekend they would fire employees who protested during the anthem — as Trump has insisted NFL teams do with their own players.

“So proud of NASCAR and its supporters and fans,” Trump tweeted. “They won’t put up with disrespecting our Country or our Flag – they said it loud and clear!”

Trump followed that up minutes later with a pair of tweets aimed at the dozens of NFL players who took a knee during the anthem before Sunday’s games, expressing approval of the fans who booed players for protesting.
