President Trump Cancels Philadelphia Eagles Visit Over Anthem Dispute

President Trump Cancels Philadelphia Eagles Visit Over Anthem Dispute President Trump Cancels Philadelphia Eagles Visit Over Anthem Dispute

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has also been critical of Mr Trump, and reportedly described his presidency as "disastrous".

Trump said in a statement the Eagles, who defeated the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in February, wanted to send a smaller delegation but that he declined.

In the weeks leading up to this scheduled ceremony, Eagles players and staff members had conversations among themselves regarding how to handle the visit, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported.

Apparently that tradition will end as President Trump has disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from visiting the White House. Here are some facts. 1. "No. 30 years ago, yeah maybe it would be cool, but no, I don't think the president cares, and I don't think the players really care", said Joseph Orr of Taylor.

Democratic Senator Bob Casey called the event a "political stunt" and extended an invite to the Eagles to instead visit the US Capitol.

The Eagles issued a statement without directly addressing the White House cancellation. "They represent the diversity of our nation-a nation in which we are free to express our opinions", he said. "I will have @Wawa coffee waiting".

Trump was critical of kneeling players last season, calling them "sons of bitches", and is in favor of the stricter policy.

But the issue Trump brought to the fore - players kneeling during the National Anthem - was not one of the team's chief concerns. Teams can be fined if players do not stand and "show respect" during the anthem. The team reportedly wanted to send a small group of players.

He said the anthem will be played "loudly and proudly" at a ceremony on Tuesday.

Trump has repeatedly decried the players' protest, referring to them as "sons of bitches" who should be fired at a rally for supporters in Alabama past year.

In a statement released to reporters, Trump responded to the snub by disinviting the team. In September, Trump withdrew the Golden State Warriors' invitation after he saw the team hesitate to decide if they'd attend the celebratory visit.
