As the Philadelphia Eagles celebrate their big win and the New England Patriots lick their wounds, Donald Trump is focusing on what happened before the game, not during it.
During his speech today on tax cuts and the economy at an Ohio factory, the president took a minute to change the subject to the Super Bowl. He told the audience, “There was nobody kneeling at the beginning of the Super Bowl.” He then proceeded to ask, “We’ve made a lot of improvement, haven’t we?”
It was quite the interesting topic change especially since his speech didn't have much to do with football. This detour in his speech will make for good conversation if the Philadelphia Eagles visit the White House, seeing how many have already said they will not attend if invited.
Eagles safety, Malcolm Jenkins, told CNN that he would not be attending the visit to the White House, "Nah, I personally do not anticipate attending. New Day."
Eagles defensive end, Chris Long, also stated that he would not be visiting the White House. "No, I'm not going to the White House. Are you kidding me?" he stated during an interview on 'Pardon My Take' Podcast last Sunday. This will be his second time skipping the visit to the White House as he skipped last year when he won alongside the New England Patriots.
