The demonstrations began previous year with former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been unable to find a new team after leaving the 49ers.

No formal action has been taken against protesters, however.

As the article notes, the company has previously downplayed its involvement in Russia's potential election interference. Facebook reportedly unearthed $100,000 (£76,000) in spending from a single Russian group, the Internet Research Agency.

After an October 18 meeting with team owners, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the league would like to see players stand for the national anthem, but there will be no penalties for those who take a knee.

After the fall meetings, Goodell reiterated the league wants its players to stand during the anthem. Thursday, Trump tweeted that the NFL's decision to stand by its players exhibits "total disrespect for our great country".

Chicago area's soft-drink tax repealed by county board
The Cook County Board of Commissioners voted, 15-2, to repeal a penny-per-ounce tax that went into effect on August 2. After Wednesday's vote, Preckwinkle indicated she wouldn't be taking the lead in adjusting the county's finances.

In a brief press conference on Tuesday night at the NFL's headquarters, Goodell was asked whether players were told to stand during the anthem. But a post from the president's private Twitter account early Wednesday morning indicated otherwise.

The petition came days after NFL team owners, executives and players met in NY, where they decided that the league would not implement a rule forcing players to stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner". It is an important moment in our game. Trump's remarks sparked a furious backlash amongst NFL players, team owners and league officials, with large-scale protests by players during the anthem in the weekend following the president's tirade. Stop listening to a president who calls these black players "sons of bitches".

Trump kicked off his attack on the players by calling National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick a "son of a bitch". "If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play", Jones said earlier this month. The president has targeted the protests as disrespecting the flag and the troops, when in fact, the players and others participating in the protests have specifically stated that they are taking a knee in protest of the racial inequality in the United States.
