ESPN suspends Jemele Hill for violating social media policy. Donald Trump responds

The president then used Twitter to dabble into health care and immigration policy before calling out Hill, who was suspended Monday for two weeks for firing off more controversial tweets, this time about the NFL's national anthem protests.

Hill was suspended after she told her Twitter followers they should consider boycotting advertisers of the Dallas Cowboys, after owner Jerry Jones threatened to bench players who kneeled during the national anthem before games. This week, Hill's online comments about Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones prompted the network to sit her down for two weeks and there has been a strong push back in social media. At the time, ESPN said it had addressed the comments with Hill and "she recognizes her actions were inappropriate".

Hill previously came under fire for her tweets criticizing president Donald Trump, specifically one in which she called him a "white supremacist".

Hill also said Trump was the "most ignorant, offensive president" and "unqualified and unfit to be president". She did say that the Twitter posts "painted ESPN in an unfair light".
