Trump holds 'patriotism' event without Eagles

The move to scrap the visit - originally planned for Tuesday - comes after a tumultuous 2017 season that saw Trump launch furious assaults on mostly black National Football League players who took the knee.

Linda Teberio, 53, of Fairview Twp., is an Eagles fan and Trump supporter.

Less than 24 hours before President Donald Trump was to welcome the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, he rescinded the invitation Monday evening.

"Disinviting them from the White House only proves that our president is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party to which no one wants to attend", Kenney added. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there. If they don't stand during the anthem and "show respect", their team will be fined.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James said Tuesday neither his team nor the Golden State Warriors would visit the White House if they won the NBA Finals this season. And America's our home and we love our home, and our country has never done better than it's doing right now.

The White House on Tuesday said it had canceled the long-established capital tradition for the Super Bowl winning team after the Eagles said that just a handful of people would attend the event, fewer than the 81 initially proposed.

The White House later acknowledged that the low expected attendance was a key factor, saying in a statement the team "decided to abandon their fans". "In other words, the vast majority of the Eagles team made a decision to abandon their fans". Some players raised their fists during the anthem.

Trump has manipulated the intentions of those who choose not to visit the White House and those who kneel during the national anthem.

Jeffrey Lurie, owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, donated $2,700 to Hillary for America, a group that supported Hillary Clinton's campaign for president, in 2015, according to the Federal Election Commission.
