Heads at the school had “as of late been whipped into a free for all” by the discussion caused by NFL players bowing for the national song of praise, as per the claim. NFL players had as of late made a move to challenge some of President Trump’s announcements.
The claim likewise charges that India was told after she was removed that “if your mother does not arrive in five minutes the police are coming.”

India discloses to The News that she began sitting for the vow in ninth grade. She said that “police ruthlessness” and “Donald Trump being President” propels her to do it, and she was amazed when she got in a bad position for it.
“I said I wouldn’t, and they said you are kicked out of here,” India told the Daily News. “The other lady said this isn’t the NFL, you won’t do this here.”
“I never advised her to do this,” her mother said. “I’m glad for her for confronting what she has faith in. She said she trusts it just brings consciousness of what is happening.”
Nicole Ray, a representative for the school region said she didn’t know about the claim and noticed an “understudy won’t be expelled from grounds for declining to remain for the Pledge.
