Report: Fewer than 10 Eagles players were going to attend White House

  Report: Fewer than 10 Eagles players were going to attend White House Maybe now we know the reason President Donald Trump cancelled the Philadelphia Eagles’ visit to the White House — he was scared of being embarrassed. The Eagles were set to visit the White House on Tuesday to be congratulated for winning the Super Bowl. However, some players did not want to attend because of a severe difference in political viewpoints from the president.According to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, the Eagles’ owner left it up to the players to decide if they wanted to go, and the team was going to send a small group for the visit.

Former Philadelphia Eagles player Cris Carter said in a tweet on Monday that former President Obama should invite the Super Bowl champions over for a barbecue after President Trump disinvited the players from visiting the White Hous.

"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," Trump said in a statement late Monday.

"The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better," he continued.

The president said fans of the team would still be invited to the reception "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."

Trump has continuously lashed out at players who take a knee during the national anthem at games as a mean to protest social injustices in the U.S.
