Jenkins, who raised his fist during the national anthem, was among the Eagles who had previously indicated they wouldn't attend the White House ceremony after the Eagles won the Super Bowl. Their message of social change has been drowned out and turned into a matter of patriotism and the kneeling/protesting players' apparent disrespect for the country, its flag, and its military. We're a team. Been that way since I've been here.

With criticism mounting throughout the morning Tuesday, the White House issued a statement defending its decision because Eagles players had "abandoned" their fans.

At the meeting, Trump said his wife "went through a little rough patch, but she's doing great. Thank you, Melania. She's doing great", Trump said.

On Comedy Central, The Daily Show's Trevor Noah mocked Trump's cancellation of the visit, which the president said this week was due to "a small number of players" deciding to make the trip. "The procedure was successful, and there were no complications", White House Communications Director Stephanie Grisham said in a statement on May 14.

Melania Trump was last been seen by reporters at a public event on May 10 standing alongside her husband at Joint Base Andrews as the couple greeted three Americans who had been released from prison in North Korea.

"Let's not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment, because I think the championship.is way bigger than being invited to the White House, especially with him in there, in my opinion", said James of this year's NBA Final. Last month, in response to the National Football League owners' decision to punish kneeling, Trump said players who continue to protest "maybe shouldn't be in the country".

But today (June 6), Jenkins put the power of creative protest in display One sign said "YOU AREN'T LISTENING", another said "Chris Long gave his entire year's salary to educational initiatives".

The Warriors, last year's National Basketball Association champs, were not invited to the White House, a moot point since they said they would not go if invited.

"I'm exhausted of the narrative being about the anthem, about the White House or whatever", he said following a meeting in downtown Philadelphia with top public defenders from around the country on the issue of bail reform. However, Eagles players never knelt during the "Star-Spangled Banner", throughout the 2017 season and their march to the Super Bowl. But I think I agree with LeBron. Last month, Commissioner Roger Goodell announced a new policy requiring players on-field before the game to stand for the anthem.
