Mike Pence leaves protest stadium after kneeling athletes
washington - US Vice President Mike Pence and his wife went out of protest on Sunday at the match between Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers in the NFL. They decided to leave the Colts Stadium because some players of the visiting team kneeled during the American Anthem. Several NFL players have been doing this for several months as a protest against police violence against especially black Americans.
'I asked Vice President Pence to leave the stadium as if only one player would kneel and damage our country,' said President Donald Trump on Twitter. 'I am proud of him and second lady Karen. ''
Trump expressed fierce criticism last month. Trump sees to kneel during the national anthem as a lack of respect for all the Americans claim. The organization of the NFL did not want to respond to Pence's widely discussed action, which himself put on Twitter a picture on which he and his wife can be seen during the national anthem with their hand on the heart.
