Florida police union rescinds ticket discounts amid NFL National Anthem protests

12 August 2018

"This organization obviously DOES NOT honor First Responders and the dangers they put themselves in every day".

Moments earlier, Jordan retweeted and commented on one of Trump's tweets, which called for NFL players who don't stand for the national anthem to be suspended without pay, wondering why Trump chose to speak out about national anthem protests instead of the second "Unite the Right" rally being held in the nation's capital this weekend.

Two Miami Dolphins players took a knee during the national anthem before their Thursday night preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that majority are unable to define", he said in one tweet.

"The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem", Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter.

Elon Musk and Tesla: Tweet, rattle and roll
After raising $450 million last year and another tranche of $214 million this year, the company is valued at about $25 billion. The exact information that Musk communicated to the board about his plan could not be learned.

The Miami-Dade police union said many of its member officers declined to provide off-duty security at Dolphins games, last season, because of the protests.

Of course, Trump actually can't suspend National Football League players without pay because he's the President of the United States of America, and not a dictator who can force his policies onto private corporations, as much as he'd probably like to be the latter. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay! "You can't say as a league that you support the players and the protest and then blackball the players that initially started the protest". "We remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issues affecting our communities".

The players are part of a growing number of athletes who have used that moment to protest police brutality and racial inequality, something Broward PBA Vice President Rod Skirvin called "disrespectful and disgusting".

But, that wasn't the most pointed Tweet at the president from Jordan.
