President Donald Trump continues to pick a fight with the NFL and its players, as he elected to cancel the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl visit to the White House, citing the national anthem protest as the reason for the invitation being rescinded.

"But her low-key presence - Melania Trump sat to her husband's left around a conference table and nodded as her husband and other officials spoke - marked the first time she's been seen by the media for almost a month, capping the end of an unusual absence from public sight, even from a first lady who is known for prizing her privacy". "It's behind us. We're moving on". Been that way since I've been here", he said "We're focused on today, great practice, today and tomorrow, three days next week and our goal is 2018.

MSNBC co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinksi, who are engaged, responded with arch tweets alluding to Mr Trump's taunting post last summer that Ms Brzezinksi was "bleeding badly from a face-lift" during a visit to his Florida golf retreat. "It's over. What you've seen and what you've heard is enough". And these things are systemic; there are ways that we can change them. Instead, the White House carried out a "Celebration of America" in a ceremony that included a Marine Corps band.

"I think the President has made it pretty clear he's going to try to divide us, all of us in this country, for political gain", said Golden State coach Steve Kerr, who has often criticized Trump and his policies.

Jenkins identified several players, including teammates Chris Long and Torey Smith, as "true patriots". "The players have conducted themselves with dignity and grace and patriotism". We stand to show our love for our fellow citizens and our magnificent Constitution.

Jenkins points out that despite the attacks on some National Football League players' patriotism, a good number of them are actually taking concrete steps like donating significant sums of money to support causes with the hope of making legitimate change for the betterment the country.

A day after the Eagles had been scheduled to see President Donald Trump, Jenkins held up about a dozen handwritten signs Wednesday, standing in silence as a large crowd of reporters continued to ask him questions.

And while the president didn't actually say outright that Eagles players were kneeling during the national anthem, a lot of people made that jump. "I don't think anyone felt pressured either way".
