The last couple of weeks has shown that Donald Trump clearly doesn't understand the premise that freedom of expression is not exclusively applicable to his alt-right base, nor does he support it for anyone who's not from his alt-right base. If he thinks that using intimidation tactics, via Twitter, he's making a big mistake. People aren't falling for the threats. The president has done more to embolden White Supremacists and encourage their acts of violence than many of his predecessors had. This type of Nixon-esque bullying has no place in our political discourse.
Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem. Respect our Flag and our Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2017
