  The Latest: Trump holds 'patriotism' event without Eagles President Donald Trump has held a "patriotism" event at the White House in lieu of a Super Bowl celebration for the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles that he canceled. The president said Tuesday that it's time to "explain why young Americans stand for our national anthem." Trump sang along to "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America" during a brief ceremony that included the U.S. Marine Band and Army chorus. Late Monday, Trump nixed the Eagles' visit because of the anticipated low turnout.

President Trump's stance on the national anthem didn't stop one man from taking a knee during the anthem at the White House event on Tuesday.

The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark.

A second man was also captured kneeling in a photo posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. The man, who was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag, was apparently the same person who also reportedly heckled Trump.

The festivities were held at the White House after the President decided not to host an event honoring Super Bowl LII winners the Philadelphia Eagles. One guy in the audience took a knee during the national anthem at President Trumps celebration of America no Eagles event .

“Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,' the person shouted to the reception boos, according to Daily Mail. “Let's hear it for the Eagles.”

The president withdrew his invitation to the Super Bowl LII champions after only about 10 players planned on attending the White House ceremony.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “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.”

Eagles players rebuffed that notion, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season.

White House Press Secretary accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.”
