TMZ was up first when they ran into Duron Harmon, who stated that he won't visit President Trump's White House to celebrate the team's Super Bowl win. Last year, President Donald Trump abruptly disinvited 2018 Super Bowl champs the Philadelphia Eagles after almost all the players and coaches said they would boycott the visit over Trump's attacks on NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

The last time the Patriots won the Super Bowl, in 2017, they visited President Trump, but some, including quarterback Tom Brady, chose not to go.

"People love to come to the White House", Trump told CBS News in an interview on Sunday. He'd rather hang out with former president Barack Obama.

Hardik Pandya's 45 off 22 balls also proved crucial towards the end of the innings which helped India push to 252. In this time Dhoni, will still appealing for lbw, grabbed the ball and under-armed it onto the stumps.

When asked whether he was going to the White House, Harmon responded, "Nah man, they don't want me at the White House". That is, most of the Patriots will visit the White House. After New England's prior Super Bowl victory, two years ago against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, cornerback Devin McCourty and tight end Martellus Bennett skipped the trip out of protest.

Last year, Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles after their Super Bowl win. The defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox are set to make their visit in May.
