National anthem protests debated in town hall

Football fields have become forums for political debate over the past week, after President Donald Trump criticized players who kneel during the National Anthem to protest police brutality.

Trump and his aides have argued that the protests are unpatriotic and disrespectful to the flag and those who have fought to protect the US, while the players' defenders argue that they are exercising free speech by not participating in the anthem while standing with their hands over their hearts.
