President Donald Trump claimed Tuesday that the National Football League is “having a very hard time” filling stadiums because Americans are “fed up” with players protesting during the national anthem.
But contrary to Trump’s tweet Tuesday, they did not all kneel during the anthem. Ten remained seated, four raised a fist, nine took a knee, and one remained off the field completely, according to an ESPN log.
Is NFL attendance down?
Trump claimed Tuesday that stadiums “are now having a very hard time filling up,” building on a Nov. 20 tweet that attendance was “way down.”
But that’s not true, according to the NFL.
