President Trump on Sunday sent a Super Bowl message to Americans, calling on them to stand during the national anthem.

“Their sacrifice is stitched into each star and every stripe of our Star-Spangled Banner,” Trump said. “We hold them in our hearts and thank them for our freedom as we proudly stand for the National Anthem.”
