Philadelphia Eagles: Most of the players weren't going anyway

Philadelphia Eagles: Most of the players weren't going anyway

The White House did not allow journalists to cover the Gold Star event out of respect for the families, which meant Ms Trump was seen in person only by the 40 or so families and administration officials who attended.

Wallace said in a statement released by Fox News on Tuesday that "To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout regular or post-season past year".

"I think it's a little bit disappointing right now that this country that we're so divided", Kelce said.

The players went home for the weekend unsure, and the coaching staff told them to keep their cellphones close by for an incoming text message about the team's final decision about the White House.

Trump tweeted it was falsely reported she faced "near death", had a "facelift", left the White House, or was abused by the president, and blamed "the Fake News Media" of being "unfair" and "so vicious" to the first lady after her recovery from surgery to treat a benign kidney condition.

LeBron James has said that no matter who wins this year's National Basketball Association final, neither his Cavaliers or the Warriors will be accepting an invite to the White House from Donald Trump.

Nutter added that President Trump "refuses" to acknowledge issues like police brutality and racism and only wants "photo ops and to play politics".

At Wednesday's event, Trump touted how 17,000 FEMA and federal employees from the Department of Defense and National Guard were deployed to the Caribbean last fall to aid victims of Hurricane Maria.

He also said, "What you've seen and what you've heard is enough".

"That's fine", Pederson said when reminded of those remarks.

Professional and collegiate sports teams being recognized in a ceremony at the White House is a tradition that dates back many years. 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".

"Here's the thing: No Eagles players took a knee or stayed in the locker room during the anthem last season", Colbert said. But I think I agree with LeBron.

The Philadelphia Eagles have predictably been bombarded with questions regarding President Donald Trump's cancellation of their scheduled visit to the White House.

Nutter also gave credit to players Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long for their leadership on the "real issues", both of whom have been outspoken activists on social justice issues.
