President Donald Trump wants NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to see a tweeted photo of a woman lying next to her husband’s grave in a military cemetery, he said Thursday.

How exactly the powerful Sept. 16 photo ended up on the president’s Twitter feed is unclear, but he immediately endorsed it.

Trump has made repeated calls since October for NFL players to stand during the national anthem. The kneeling protests were first propelled by former quarterback Colin Kaepernick who wanted to protest violence against black citizens by police officers.
Trump has suggested the NFL change its rules to bar kneeling and has encouraged team owners to fire kneeling players.
