Fox News reports that several 49ers players reportedly knelt for the anthem on Sunday.

Full Statement from The White House: Statement by Vice President Mike Pence on Leaving Colts Game after Players Disrespect Flag and National Anthem

I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.

At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us.

While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem.

I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem.

As we detailed earlier, in a stunning capitulation from one of the most controversial sports figures in recent memory, former San Francisco 49ers backup QB Colin Kaepernick told CBS Sports that he would stand during the national anthem if given the chance to play football again.

Kaepernick, who has been training rigorously in New Jersey in an effort to re-enter league play after severing his contract with the 49ers in March, said he would not kneel for the anthem if he signs with a team. He also said he plans to donate the money from his jersey sales to charity.

“He’s not planning on kneeling – if given the opportunity,” said Jason La Canfora, who sat down with Kaepernick for an interview.
