NFL protests continue as war of words with President Trump escalates
Last Updated: 30/07/20 10:29am
The war-of-words between President Trump and a wide cross-section of American sports showed no sign of abating judging by the pre-match events at Wembley stadium on Sunday.
The Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars were the first NFL teams to take the field following Trump's comments on players disrespecting the American flag.
Both Ravens and Jaguars players were seen linking arms on their respective sidelines in north-west London and several players were also seen 'taking a knee'.
Trump had made several tweets and comments ahead of this week's game, including calling for those kneeling to be fired and saying the NFL is "boring."
If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017
