President Trump on Monday said the NFL should suspend Marshawn Lynch for sitting during the national anthem after the Raiders running back took a seat Sunday before Oakland’s game in Mexico City but stood for Mexico’s national anthem.
Lynch’s moves Sunday weren’t unprecedented. Earlier this season, in NFL games in London, some players kneeled for the U.S. anthem but stood for “God Save the Queen.”
The president’s first tweet of the day pushed him into the sports world again after a weekend in which he was embroiled in a back and forth over how much he helped get three UCLA players released after their detainment in China.
Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch enjoyed two rushing touchdowns in his first game back from a one-game suspension. It’s the first time Lynch has had two rushing TDs in a game since Dec. 21, 2014.
Kate, who no longer drives for Uber, said she doesn’t want money, but wanted to tell the truth “about a powerful man who felt entitled to my body when all I wanted to do was my job.”
“If I’m silent, I fear that further harm will come to other women, if it hasn’t already,” she said. “He sexually assaulted me, and I have every right to tell the damn truth about it.”
A spokesperson for Uber told BuzzFeed News in a statement that Winston was permanently removed from the app after Kate filed an incident report.
