On September 23, 2017, President Trump commented on NFL players who don’t stand during the National Anthem. He said, “If players want the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our great American flag and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!” Galileo students and staff had their own opinions on the situation.

It’s immature, it’s not something he should be focusing on because it’s just something we watch as people and cause he is the President and should be focusing on the problems within the country. -Eduardo Melendez (Sr.)
