President Trump plans to celebrate America instead of Super Bowl Champion Eagles

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Philadelphia Eagles told President Trump they wouldn’t be sending their full team for a White House visit, so he changed the event to a celebration of America, instead.

Reportedly, a number of Philadelphia Eagles players planned to skip the White House visit Tuesday, June 5, at which their team was to be honored for winning the 2018 Super Bowl. Some of the players apparently has political or other disagreements with the President. So, President Trump essentially un-invited the team to the White House, and issued this statement:

President Trump

“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They 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. The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better. These fans are still 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. I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America.”
