Trump pulls invitation to National Football League champions Eagles over anthem

"We stand to show our love for our fellow citizens and our magnificent Constitution", Trump said.

On Monday Night, President Trump appeared to rescind the Philadelphia Eagles' invitation to the White House.

Last year, the New England Patriots attended a ceremony at the White House. But late Friday, the team tried to reschedule, proposing a time when Trump would be overseas.

But the Eagles said only a "tiny handful" of representatives would show up and that the great majority of players would not attend, Sanders said. But the 1,000 or so who came to the event were a suspicious group of football fans: nearly all in business suits and only a few wearing Eagles paraphernalia.

Sanders made the comments Tuesday during a contentious press briefing in which she was repeatedly asked about delivering an inaccurate statement related to the Russian Federation investigation.

White House officials are scrutinizing various ways Republicans have backed Trump both before and after the 2016 election.

"The players didn't create this division (in the country)", Long said.

The clip, which was posted to Twitter, drew strong reactions from Ertz and defensive end Chris Long on Tuesday morning.

- President Donald Trump's kept up his feud with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday after most team members refused to attend an event honoring their Super Bowl victory in the fallout over Trump's demand that players stand for the national anthem.

Trump created an uproar from players in 2017 with comments objecting to player protests during the anthem, saying players who kneel during the anthem should be fired.

I love how every time our current president chooses to try and advance himself and his personal agenda by damaging the National Football League and its players with personal attacks and all-out lies, we are forced to report on it and then are told by many of you we should "stick to sports".

No current players for the Philadelphia Eagles have been reported to take a knee during the previous season's games.

Trump previously stated that he agreed with the NFL's decision but, amid the backlash to the announcement over the Eagles' canceled visit, he said: "Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling", in a tweet on Tuesday.

The mayor was referring to deferments Trump obtained during the Vietnam War for his college education and for bone spurs in his heels.

The event will be replaced by a "celebration of the American flag" for Eagles fans with musical performances by the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus.

"Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!" he wrote.

The playing of the national anthem was followed by brief remarks from Trump, who spoke for about three minutes about the importance of standing for the national anthem. Mr. Trump also called on NFL team owners to fire players who did not stand for the national anthem.

The White House has accused the Philadelphia Eagles of "abandoning their fans" in a statement about the cancellation of the team's visit with President Donald Trump due to the small number of players who planned to attend.
