He noted Stills and Wilson "have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated". "Their courage will move the world forward!" he tweeted.

Kaepernick started the protest while playing with the 49ers in 2016. "'Love is at the root of our resistance!'" Kaepernick said on Twitter.

Miami Dolphins' players Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson both made a decision to take a knee during the national anthem of the first Sunday football game of the regular season.

Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Nike's "Just Do It" campaign, the message of the Kaepernick commercials is: "Believe in something". "Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a decade".

In a tweet, Kaepernick gave a shout-out to "my brothers", Dolphins teammates Kenny Stills and Albert Watson, who were the only two players in the league to take a knee during the national anthem during Sundays early games.

Trump has inserted himself in the cultural battle over whether players should be able to kneel in protest during the national anthem. Stills told the New York Times earlier this week that he planned to continue carrying Colin Kaepernick's torch, even though "the first two years of this protest have been really hard with the negative backlash we've been receiving". Fellow "boycotted" National Football League player Eric Reid coordinated an identical tweet with the same body of text as Kaepernick.

The NFL unilaterally passed a policy requiring players to stand at attention for the anthem or to stay in the locker room or in the tunnel under the stands.

"At this point I think it's important for us and for the movement to continue to change and adapt to the context of the situation", Jenkins said after the game. "We're trying to move past the rhetoric of what's right or what's wrong in terms of the anthem, and really focus on the systematic issues that are plaguing our communities".
