Trump holds ‘patriotism’ event without Eagles

Trump holds ‘patriotism’ event without Eagles

"It's over, behind us and we're moving on".

National Basketball Association star LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are now vying for the title against the Golden State Warriors, said: "I know no matter who wins this series, no-one wants the invite anyway".

"It is what it is".

It apparently wasn't enough, though, for some of Pederson's players.

During his Wednesday media session, the Eagles safety responded to questions by holding up a number of hand-written signs with various statements regarding social issues and describing the ways National Football League players have given back to their communities. Malcolm Jenkins refused to utter a word to reporters, instead choosing to hold up signs listing incarceration statistics for people of color and the large number of juveniles in prison for non-violent crimes.

The NFL Players' Association also hit out at Trump in a statement that read: "Our union is disappointed in the decision by the White House to disinvite players from the Philadelphia Eagles from being recognised and celebrated by all Americans for their accomplishment". According to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, 81 members of the organization originally said they would attend.

"Eighty players said [they would] attend".

Garrett said he feels bad for the fans and the players.

"I think [Pederson] is a good guy". "But he's sick of this".

Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, confirmed Sunday that the first lady would not accompany the president to the G-7 summit this week in Canada or the planned North Korean summit in Singapore on June 12.

The White House announced on Monday the Eagles' invitation to an event to celebrate their Super Bowl LII triumph had been withdrawn, a statement reading: "The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow".

Upon learning these facts, the President made a decision to change the event so that it would be a celebration of the American flag with Eagles fans and performances by United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus.

In response, the NFL has decided that players and teams will be fined if they kneel during national anthem from next season. He sees T-shirts proclaiming that the wearer stands for the anthem. We stand to show our love for our fellow citizens and our magnificent Constitution.

"Listen we have a lot of freedom in our country". We stand together for patriotism. A military band and chorus delivered the Star-Spangled Banner and God Bless America, with brief remarks from Mr Trump sandwiched in between.

Eagles players did not kneel during the national anthem in regular season and postseason games last season.

"I don't think [he's] actually kneeling", joked Arroyo of one robust anthem protestor.
