President Donald Trump responded to a Fox News report by attacking a black athlete on Twitter.


"Fox & Friends" hosts spent two minutes Monday morning on Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, who took a knee during the "Star-Spangled Banner" but remained standing for the national anthem of Mexico, where his team played Sunday against the New England Patriots.

"Why would were they playing in Mexico City?" asked Ainsley Earhardt, and co-host Brian Kilmeade explained NFL teams played there and London every year. "That's a question that a lot of people who don't follow the NFL like you do are asking out there."

The co-hosts then complained about NFL player protests, and they couldn't agree whether the league or the players union was more to blame.

"This is an international embarrassment," Kilmeade said. "When you go overseas and pull this stuff after the league has been urging you not to. A lot of people are blaming the commissioner, I blame the players union. The players union has to crack down because it's hurting the league."

Almost 20 minutes later, the president tweeted out a complaint of his own against Lynch.

The day before, Trump attacked the father of one of the UCLA basketball players he asked China to release after they were arrested for shoplifting.
