Trump tweets about suspending Marshawn Lynch after Sunday's anthem protest

On Monday morning, Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch became the latest sports figure to draw the ire of President Donald Trump on social media.

Lynch made headlines during Sunday's game between the Raiders and Patriots by electing to stand for the Mexican National Anthem, but sit for the Star Bangled Banner. Trump took to social media the following day, suggesting the NFL should suspend Lynch.

Lynch is far from the first professional athlete to attract social media attention from the president. Over the course of the 2017 NFL season, Trump has lashed out at players on Twitter for protesting during the national anthem.

The latest sports commentary from President Trump follows a weekend in which he engaged in a social media spat with America's most high-profile sports parent, LaVar Ball.
