The Saints collectively took a knee before the national anthem and then stood and linked arms as it was sung by Darius Rucker.

Later President Trump tweeted embedded video of fans and players standing at an NHL game, writing "19,000 respecting our National Anthem!"

"As a way to show respect to all, our #Saints team will kneel in solidarity prior to the national anthem & stand together during the anthem", Saints quarterback Drew Brees tweeted Thursday.

Soon, more players joined in the protest across the league as they knelt to protest inequality in the United States. How many have faced those others who don't agree with their protest, how many have come face to face with another angry crowd of protesters? The players are free to protest however they want off the field, but not on the field; not in front of millions of fans who come to the game or tune in to escape politics and just watch a football game. Respect our Flag and our Country!'

America continues to see divisiveness about NFL players protesting during the national anthem and people get triggered about it.

The entire teams of the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars knelt ahead of the anthem this week, while the New England Patriots stood with one hand on their heart and one on the chest of the player next to them, The Hill reported.

"The NFL has all sorts of rules and regulations", the President wrote.
