Lawyer Cites Donald Trump's Rhetoric in Defense of Montana Man Who Assaulted a Boy for Wearing a Hat During the National Anthem
The Trump administration may soon find themselves facing another subpoena. But this time not from Congress.

NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that would require players to stand if they are on the field during the performance. If the players do not stand, their team will face fines.
