Philadelphia Eagles' Doug Pederson was looking forward to White House visit

The White House did not allow journalists to cover the Gold Star event out of respect for the families, which meant Mrs Trump was seen in person only by the 40 or so families and administration officials who attended. That was after a statement was sent out the day before, falsely stating that Eagles players kneeling and disrespecting the flag was the core reason for the initial cancellation. Trump claims the Eagles disagreed with his position on standing for the National Anthem before the game, but during the 2017 regular season and playoffs, Eagles players always stood during The Star-Spangled Banner.

"What patriotism is is helping your fellow citizen and whether it's what [NBA player Kevin Durant is] doing or what we did when we visited Washington or what the Lynx are doing today, that's what patriotism is about".

"We've had three devastating major hurricanes that hit our country within a month's time", said Trump.

It is not clear what transpired in the run-up to Monday evening, when President Trump disinvited the team after fewer than 10 team members planned to attend, according to the White House.

"The things that he spews are straight-up racist and sexist", Smith-Pelly said with the Capitals a victory away from their first title.

But as one of Jenkins' signs says, instead of those issues getting the attention they deserve, many people aren't listening.

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

Sky also recently saw its live rights to Spanish football go to another relatively new player in the industry, Eleven Sports. They also plan to create a new subscription streaming service, centered around golf, later this year.

All-Pro center Jason Kelce told The Associated Press that players filled out forms anonymously indicating whether they wanted to go to the White House.

Trump then tweeted on the matter, writing: "Only a small number of players made a decision to come, and we cancelled the event".

Finally, he held up a sign filled with the names of prominent National Football League social justice advocates, calling them "True Patriots" and in subsequent signs marking how those National Football League players helped make America a better place.

Actually they did apologize for their mistake, which they would never allow another news organization to do, but I think showing kneeling players who are praying and saying it's during the anthem.that's the very definition of fake news.

"What you've seen and what you've heard is enough". "I don't think anyone felt pressured either way".
