WASHINGTON (AP) — A day after scrubbing a White House visit by the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, President Donald Trump appeared to challenge a new NFL policy that requires players to stand if they’re on the field during the national anthem or stay in the locker room.

Trump initially praised the policy after the NFL announced it last month.

Seizing an opportunity to fan a culture war he has stoked, Trump tweeted today: “Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!”
