Pick your battles, Mr. President



Dear Editor:

A football player puts his hand over his heart and kneels during the national anthem in protest for what he sees as injustice in the treatment of his people. President Trump thinks this is unpatriotic. He draws a line in the sand, wants players forced to stand or be fired, has sent out numerous tweets and now a petition.

Protesters cross state lines, heavily armed, carrying torches and Nazi flags and denouncing Jews, immigrants and non-whites. I think this is unpatriotic. I wish Trump was as morally outraged by these protesters and would leave the football players alone.
