Donald Trump ramped up his battle with the National Football League on Wednesday, tweeting his frustrations about national-anthem protests before 6 o’clock in the morning from the confines of his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort.

‘The NFL is now thinking about a new idea – keeping teams in the Locker Room during the National Anthem next season. That’s almost as bad as kneeling!’ the president wrote.

‘When will the highly paid Commissioner finally get tough and smart? This issue is killing your league!’

Trump was referring to a Washington Post report on Tuesday that outlined a possible new league policy being privately debated by NFL team owners.

Various players and teams have stayed in their locker rooms before games this year, emerging only after the National Anthem is played in order to avoid the decision of whether or not to stand.

Most recently, Trump slammed Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch for continuing to sit for The Star Spangled Banner, despite standing for the Mexican anthem before a game on Sunday.

Lynch’s latest protest took place on Sunday before the Raiders played the New England Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.
