National Football League should suspend Oakland Raiders' Marshawn Lynch

"Attendance and ratings way down", Trump said on his official Twitter account Monday morning.

Donald Trump, Marcus Peters would like a word with you.

Lynch and other professional players have been sitting or kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

That's why Lynch stood for the Mexican national anthem.

Monday morning, Trump once again took up his cudgel against black football players, attacking Raiders player Marshawn Lynch for kneeling during the US anthem while standing for the Mexican anthem.

"That's insane", he said of Lynch's actions.

"President Trump I voted for you, which I now regret".

Harrison Ford helps out in traffic accident
Eyewitnesses tell TMZ Ford was driving behind her when she lost control and crashed into an embankment off the freeway. Ford told Federal Aviation Administration officials he was distracted by a couple of jets at the time of the incident.

Fellow NFL player Colin Kaepernick started the practice previous year, as a means of protesting police treatment of black Americans.

Lynch did not stand for the "The Star-Spangled Banner" during a game against the New England Patriots on Sunday in Mexico City, but did stand for the playing of Mexico's national anthem.

"I think what Marshawn did, it nearly undermined all of the work that Colin Kaepernick has done". Before the latest missive, he had not tweeted about the National Football League since 23 October.

He also recently chastised LaVar Ball, father of LiAngelo Ball, a UCLA freshman basketball player who was released from detention in China after Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

This is the second time in two days that Mr Trump has criticised athletes. "Don't tell me nothing".

Mr Trump responded via tweet, suggesting he should have left the younger Mr Ball imprisoned.
