BREAKING: White House Cancels Meeting With Philadelphia Eagles, Due to African American Players not Attending!✊✊
President Donald Trump announced Monday the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles would not visit the White House on Tuesday due to the fact that some team members were boycotting the event.
"[The Eagles] disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country," Trump said in a statement released Monday evening. "The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better."
Trump said Eagles fans are invited to the White House "to be part of a different type of ceremony — one that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem."
THANK YOU PHILADELPHIA EAGLES! #FlyEaglesFly
