Trump Says He Told Pence To Walk Out on NFL Game After Players Kneel During National Anthem

President Trump on Sunday took to Twitter to praise Vice President Mike Pence’s walk-out on the 49ers-Colts NFL game after players knelt in protest during the national anthem.

“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence said via Twitter.

“I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen,” Trump said in a tweet announcing he was behind the decision to leave the football game.
