Hours before the NFL season was set to kick off in full on Sunday, President Trump took a dig at the league’s declining viewership for its primetime opener last Thursday, when the Philadelphia Eagles took on the Atlanta Falcons.

Calling the viewership “the lowest in a decade,” Trump suggested that if players stood for “The Star-Spangled Banner” then the ratings would improve.
