Just two weeks after Donald Trump kicked off his war of words with the National Football League (NFL), Vice President Mike Pence looks to be following in his footsteps. After protests continued during Sunday's games, Pence voiced his opposition on social media.

Pence on NFL

It started last month while Donald Trump was attending a campaign rally for Luther Strange in Alabama. The issue of the nation anthem protests was brought up, with Trump ripping into the NFL players and the league for allowing the protests to take place. The former host of "The Apprentice" referred to those who protest as a "son of a bitch," while calling on team owners to step up and fire them.

The feud continued into the following week, with big names sports stars speaking out against the president, including NBA star LeBron James labeling Trump a "bum." The story quickly dominated the headlines in both the sports and political world, with the reaction mostly being split down partisan political lines. On Sunday during the game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers, Mike Pence was in attendance, but decided to leave due to the national anthem protests. The vice president went on to elaborate further in a statement and in a series of tweets on October 8.

Taking to his Twitter feed on Sunday was Mike Pence who expressed his support for standing during the national anthem.

"I left today's Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem," Pence tweeted out.

"At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us," Mike Pence added in a follow up tweet.

"While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't think it's too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem," he continued.

In his final tweet on the matter, Mike Pence concluded his thoughts on the protests taking place in the NFL over the national anthem.

"I stand with @POTUS Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem," he wrote.
