Mike Pence walks out of NFL game in protest at players kneeling

Vice President Mike Pence walked out of an NFL game on Sunday in protest at players kneeling during the national anthem after he was asked by Donald Trump to do so.

Mr Pence, who has often gone out of his way to demonstrate loyalty to the president, was attending a game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers.

Some players from the 49ers kneeled during the anthem, while some Colts wore black T-shirts with the words “We Will” on the front and “Stand for equality, justice, unity, respect, dialogue, opportunity” on the back. The players stood with their arms locked during the anthem.
