Eagles Won't Celebrate Championship At White House

Donald Trump Patriots Eagles Won't Celebrate Championship At White House

President Trump seemed to not know the words to "God Bless America", as he sang Tuesday at the White House after rescinding his victory ceremony invitation to Super Bowl champs the Philadelphia Eagles. The reason: the team won't promise that all players will stand with hand on heart for the national anthem. Lurie decided that a smaller contingent of players - of which, Garofolo says he was told would be less than 10 - would visit the White House before Trump called off the ceremony.

Mr. Trump has made the NFL a field for his ultra-nationalist politics after some players began to kneel during national anthem at games to protest police violence against African Americans. Earlier Wednesday, Head Coach Doug Peterson kept his remarks brief about being disinvited to the white house after only a handful of the team was planning to attend.

While reporting on the story, Fox News used photos of Eagles players kneeling on the ground, which is most often associated with the controversial NFL protests during the national anthem.

Republican U.S. Rep. Ryan Costello, an Eagles fan from suburban Philadelphia, said on Twitter that Trump had handled the matter poorly and that he would not go to the White House.

Mr. Trump issued a statement Monday evening saying the full National Football League team would not be coming after several players indicated they wouldn't participate. "Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!"

Trump created an uproar from players in 2017 with comments objecting to player protests during the anthem, saying players who kneel during the anthem should be fired.

However, instead of hitting back at Trump, the Eagles released a statement praising the team's accomplishments in winning a first Super Bowl title in franchise history.

"There are a lot of people on the team that have plenty of different views". Whoever wanted to attend should still have been able to attend. Star basketball players LeBron James, of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Stephen Curry, of the Golden State Warriors, said they agreed that whichever team wins the NBA championship would skip the traditional visit to the White House.
