Eagles in contact with White House about potential visit

Eagles in contact with White House about potential visit Eagles in contact with White House about potential visit

Ken Belson and Michael D. Shear of the New York Times obtained a recording of Lurie criticizing the president during a private league meeting in October.

As the Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles would customarily be invited to the White House to be recognized by the President for their achievement.

Unlike most years, players' decision on whether they will visit or not visit the White House becomes huge news because of the controversy Donald Trump has caused within sports, most notably with National Football League players.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie - described as "one of the most liberal owners in the NFL" in the Times report - was asked about the possibility of visiting the White House at the NFL Owner's Meetings in Orlando last month.

"But this is not where you brandish a group of people because they own assets in a sport we love, supporting what many of us perceive as, you know, one disastrous presidency", Lurie said.

After winning the Super Bowl with the Saints as a rookie, Jenkins said the team spent only a five minutes in the same room as president Barack Obama.

Last year, the Patriots visited Trump on April 19 to celebrate their Super Bowl title.

Lurie made his comment in response to a player saying it was hard to trust owners since many supported Trump, who was sharply critical of players protesting during the national anthem before games.

According to a New York Times report, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "We have been in conversations with the Eagles about timing and are working with them to make it happen". I want the guys who chose to go to enjoy that.

Lurie better hope The White House canceled its subscription to "The Failing New York Times".

He was especially critical of players who protested during the national anthem, saying the NFL should "fire or suspend" anyone who would kneel. Long, who donated his 2017 salary to charity, has said Trump's comments after the race clashes in Charlottesville are a non-starter for any dialogue that could take place between he and the president.

Malcolm Jenkins is among the Eagles players to speak out against President Trump.

Shear, both the White House and the Eagles acknowledged that they've been in communication with each other regarding a potential visit.
