NFL players will protest at the Mall in Washington D.C. on Wednesday in a show of solidarity against President Donald Trump’s proposed ban on all Muslim immigrants and refugees entering the United States.
The players will not be wearing their jerseys or the national anthem, but will instead wear t-shirts with slogans such as “No more Trump.”
“The players are standing in solidarity with those who have been hurt by Trump’s actions,” said Chris Christie, a senior advisor to the players’ union.
Christie added, “We’re here to stand in solidarity against these racist and discriminatory policies, and the NFL stands in solidarity, in solidarity and in unity.” “
The message we want to send is that we support the players, the NFL and the American people, regardless of your political beliefs, and we are here to support those who stand up for their rights and freedoms.”
Christie added, “We’re here to stand in solidarity against these racist and discriminatory policies, and the NFL stands in solidarity, in solidarity and in unity.”
Christie, who is also a vice chair of the National Football League Players Association, was in Washington for the team’s first preseason game against the New York Jets.
The league’s annual spring meeting was held in Atlanta and drew more than 1,200 players and their families.
During the protest, players will hold a moment of silence, and will not use the word “n****r.”
Christie said the players will also wear black ribbons to symbolize the fact that the players are not affiliated with any political party, and “have chosen to be on this side of the aisle to bring people together and unite us.”
We want to be standing up for the American Dream and standing up against bigotry, bigotry and hatred.” “
I am sure we’ll see plenty of folks in the stands supporting us, but we also want to make sure that we are standing together for the people who have the most to stand up against, for those who need our support.
We want to be standing up for the American Dream and standing up against bigotry, bigotry and hatred.”
The protest is expected to begin at 9 a.m. local time, according to the NFL.
The NFL will hold its next preseason game in Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 25.
Christie told reporters earlier in the day that the NFL players are protesting in solidarity “because we feel that the president’s policies are wrong, wrong, and wrong.”
“I’m sure they’re going to see the protests, and they’ll be protesting against those policies and those people, and I don’t think that’s going to be a good thing for the NFL,” he said.
In a statement released Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league will not allow players to kneel during the national anthems, a practice that has been banned by the NFL for decades.
“In a time when so many are hurting and so many in need, I believe we must take a stand in support, not against, our players and our coaches,” Goodell said.
Goodell said that the league does not condone the protests and that it will “work with the players to understand why the protest is taking place, as well as what actions they may take.”
