Trump issues a major statement against National Football League players refusing White House visit

POTUS has spoken! Donald Trump has shockingly chose to call off the Philadelphia Eagles visit to the White House due to controversy surrounding certain player's decisions to not stand for the National Anthem.

"During our report about President Trump canceling the Philadelphia Eagles trip to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win, we showed unrelated footage of players kneeling in prayer".

In the end, Sanders says the Eagles offered to send "only a tiny handful of representatives" to the event, "while making clear that the great majority of players would not attend". The White House said that they would "loudly and proudly play the National Anthem" during the event reported the Hill.

Don't be late: "I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America", he said.

Under a policy unveiled last month by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and welcomed by Trump, teams will be fined if players on the field fail to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner".

"The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House", Trump wrote on his Twitter page.

However, he added that if it can't agree such terms that "the only effective remedy now would be to block the merger altogether". Hancock also announced that a £22 billion ($29 billion) bid for Sky from Comcast ( CMCSA ) would be allowed to proceed.

In the wake of Trump's cancellation, Tuesday became a regular OTA day for the reigning Super Bowl champions.

Many players in the NFL have been critical of President Trump's comments on race relations, with the president labelling the league "weak and out of control" back in October.

The decision came after the Eagles met with their players about the White House visit.

Last year, the White House canceled a visit by the National Basketball Association champions, the Golden State Warriors. but that was after it's star players said they wouldn't be going. He has repeatedly spoken out on the issue and condemned the players who choose to kneel during the song. Trump had been prepared to host the Eagles Tuesday, but announced Monday he was canceling the event.

As a result, the victory party planned for later today no longer has the Philadelphia Eagles on the guest list.
