When the Eagles first won Super Bowl LII, Malcolm Jenkins, Torrey Smith and Chris Long immediately stated they had no intentions of making the trip to the White House.

"The White House, despite sensing a lack of good faith, nonetheless attempted to work with the Eagles over the weekend to change the event format that could accommodate a smaller group of players", she said.

Mister Trump went on to say that a different event will be held at the White House. a tribute to the miliary that will feature the National Anthem.

The White House accused Eagles team members of pulling a "political stunt" and abandoning their fans by backing out at the last minute.

He says, "To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout regular or post-season a year ago", adding: "We apologize for the error".

"Eagles fans understand that our players are individuals who can stand up for themselves and stand up for what they believe in and that's what this country's about", Kenney said.

Trump, he said, "continues to spread the false narrative that players are anti military".

Instead of celebrating the Eagles' Super Bowl win over the Patriots, Trump made a decision to honor America by paying "tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it".

Fact No. 1: There was not a single Eagles player who failed to stand respectfully for the anthem last season, and there is not a single shred of evidence that any Eagles player disagrees with Trump's desire that they respect the military, our flag and our country.

Trump's moves have reignited a culture war that has pitted his mostly white, conservative base against the league's African-American players and many of their white teammates.

A few weeks ago, the NFL announced it would force players to stand during the national anthem this upcoming season.

The result was one of the oddest White House events in recent memory. It's a cowardly act to cancel the celebration because the majority of the people don't want to see you.

The anthem became a politically charged issue previous year, when a number of players kneeled during its playing before games in protest of the conditions black people face in the U.S.

The Eagles were disinvited from the ceremony amid the national anthem controversy.

What those fans deserved was the ceremony the White House or Trump - I don't know who actually planned it - promised them, not the one the president canceled to advance his own agenda.

The Eagles players who were to be in Washington, D.C., had planned to take part in several events with young fans. "Watching the entire Eagles community come together has been an inspiration", it read. No one refused to go simply because Trump "insists" folks stand for the anthem. 3.

"You're complicit in PLAYING America", Long wrote. "NFL players love their country".

"This is a very winning, strong issue for me", Trump told Jones, according to the deposition.

Some Democratic members of Congress from Pennsylvania reacted to the president's announcement by inviting the team to visit the Capitol instead. Sen.
