NAACP plans protests for Trump's visit to Atlanta

Top Sports

Protesters plan to demonstrate against President Donald Trump when he visits Atlanta Monday for the College Football Playoff title game.

"The Atlanta Police Department is aware of the message projected on the side of Mercedes Benz Stadium concerning President Trump".

NFL players who knelt during the national anthem found themselves in Trump's crosshairs earlier this season. The NAACP is asking people to wear white and hold anti-Trump signs.

The NAACP also planned a "Twitter storm" to begin at 6 p.m. and continue through the game to highlight what they say are lies told by the president.

President Donald Trump won the states of Alabama and Georgia in the 2016 presidential election, but Jackson says his politics and policies are antithetical to Dr. Martin Luther King's dream for America. The group plans to "take a knee" there at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Refuse Fascism ATL has also said that they will be planning a protest ahead of Trump's arrival.

The football players for Monday's game remained in their locker rooms for the anthem, as is typical for college games.

Richard Rose, the President of the NAACP's Atlanta chapter, told Fox News the protests are partially a result of the President's decision to open Georgia's coastal waters to offshore drilling development.

The NAACP said wearing white is meant to mock the "snowflake" label Mr Trump's supporters use to describe their opponents.

Trump has been highly criticical of NFL players and other athletes who have taken a knee during the national anthem as a movement against police brutality and racism.

The Federal Aviation Administration banned aircraft including drones from Saturday through Monday night, when the University of Georgia faces the University of Alabama in the College Football Playoff Championship.
