NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem to protest incidents of police abuse have prompted Broward County's police union to urge officers to return their discounted Miami Dolphins tickets for refunds.
Jordan is just one of many players who has questioned why Trump would get involved with the debate over the protests. "This did not happen at last night's preseason game against Tampa Bay", the group wrote.
"If you have already purchased tickets to this game, we encourage you to call the Dolphins ticket office to request a refund because this organization obviously DOES NOT honor First Responders and the dangers they put themselves in every day", it continued.
The Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association issued a Facebook statement on tickets.

Two Dolphins players made a decision to kneel before their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, despite the controversy surrounding the action. But after teams actually began instituting policies to fine players for kneeling, outrage led to the NFL suspending that policy and they're still working with the NFL Player's Association to determine the best course or action.
Jordan was one of the several Saints players to sit during the anthem last season, and he also had talks with quarterback Drew Brees about promoting social justice, TMZ reports. A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he added. "We have a lot of police officers in the county who are ex-military".
With the NFL preseason having officially started this past week, so have protests during the national anthem.
The NFL announced a new policy during the offseason stating players have the option to stay in the locker room during the anthem. Stills said he and Wilson didn't coordinate their decision to kneel.
