During the short ceremony, a Marine band played the national anthem, which was followed by a short speech from Trump. "The President continues to spread the false narrative that players are anti military". "You have to stand, proudly, for the national anthem or you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there, maybe you shouldn't be in the country".

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". While the latter process is based on hard data like fundraising levels and the number of doors a campaign has knocked on, the qualitative process is a "more art than science evaluation", the senior official said.

On Monday, the first lady strolled into a White House event Monday for military families and swept away the wild speculation that she was incapacitated or had otherwise vanished.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says she's "an honest person" who probably has more credibility than the media.

Trump, though, walked that back Monday.

The NBA has figured it out - they are the cool kids, the stars; Trump is a divisive politician, a petty narcissist who would gladly humiliate athletes and their teams. "The 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better", he wrote. When they informed the White House only a handful of players would attend, the trip was canceled.

Less than 10 members of the Philadelphia Eagles decided they would show up to the White House to take part in the festivities, but it would never come to that after President Donald Trump uninvited the entire organization.

"Four reporters spotted Melania in the White House last week walking merrily along to a meeting".

The overwhelming issue surrounding the Eagles' planned visit was that most of the team was not going to attend, and that was a major factor in Trump deciding to pull the invitation.

Putin signs Russian 'counter-sanctions' into law

Eagles player Zach Ertz, who was in two of the pictures used by Fox during the segment, tweeted "this can't be serious".

President Donald Trump held a "patriotism" event at the White House Tuesday afternoon instead of a Super Bowl celebration for the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles that he canceled.

No player for the Eagles knelt or sat while there were 73 other protests among Eagles players during the National Anthem during the 2017 regular season, according to report by Sports Pundit, which tracked protests among the 32 NFL teams.

The players union said in a statement Tuesday that it is disappointed by the decision and that National Football League players "love their country, support our troops, give back to their communities and strive to make America a better place".

The anthem became a politically charged issue past year, when a number of players kneeled during its playing before games in protest of the conditions black people face in the U.S.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney on Tuesday criticized Trump's decision and questioned Trump's patriotism.

In December, Trump effectively tweeted an endorsement of one of his closest congressional allies - Rep. Ron DeSantis - in Florida's GOP gubernatorial primary despite the party's general policy of staying out of primaries when an incumbent isn't running.

"Eagles fans understand that our players are individuals who can stand up for themselves and stand up for what they believe in and that's what this country's about", Kenney said.

The White House accused Eagles team members of pulling a "political stunt" and abandoning their fans by backing out at the last minute.
