Eagles players individually decided on WH trip

That did not stop the questions about the nixed White House trip from being asked.

After canceling the Eagles' visit, Trump made a decision to change the event so that it would be a celebration of the American flag, with Eagles fans and performances by the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus.

On the eve of Game 3 of the Warriors-Cavaliers series, politics dominated the conversation.

The Warriors became the first team disinvited from the White House past year, after Trump became angered by frequent political attacks from Steph Curry, forward Kevin Durant, and head coach Steve Kerr.

That said, Eagles players have been outspoken in support of players who do kneel.

"I'm not going to speak for other teams", Pederson said. "And every team that's won a championship since then has gone through that".

No Eagles players took a knee during the national anthem last season.

President Trump calls off Philadelphia Eagles' White House visit over anthem dispute
The president's tweets come hours after he disinvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from the White House . ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reported that the team learned about the cancellation via the president's statement .

The FEMA function was Mrs Trump's first public appearance outside the White House since May 10. For further proof of this, look no further than the ridiculous situation that spiraled out of what was supposed to be a ceremony at the White House recognizing the Philadelphia Eagles for winning the 2018 Super Bowl. Instead, the Lynx will spend Wednesday giving away new sneakers to more than 300 needy kids in Washington.

Earlier this week, Melania Trump had attended her first White House event in weeks.

During the War of 1812, which lasted until 1815, British troops did burn the White House in 1814 as retaliation for an American attack on York (now Toronto), Ontario. It's an honest mistake: "Fox News also thought this picture was Jesus calling a touchdown".

Nutter added that President Trump "refuses" to acknowledge issues like police brutality and racism and only wants "photo ops and to play politics". "So it's just the way it is". I was looking forward to being recognized as world champions.

Kerr, like San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich, has been outspoken in his criticism of Trump, and found it particularly ironic that the Eagles have been actively been doing "good deeds in their communities". "We stand to honor our military and to honor our country, and to remember the fallen heroes who never made it back home".

None of the Eagles players knelt during the playing of the anthem during the football season, but Trump brought up the anthem protests when he canceled the team's invitation on Monday after many players said they would not attend the celebration. Golden State's Kevin Durant said.
