Sad news for Donald Trump following the Eagles victory over the Patriots. “I personally do not anticipate attending.” “Are you kidding me?” “I just don’t feel welcome into that house”. Sorry, Donald!
Following the Eagles victory over the Patriots, the Philadelphia Eagles are now set to visit the White House to celebrate their victory. But safety Malcolm Jenkins revealed that he would not be visiting the White House to meet with Trump.
On Monday Jenkins, who stands as one of the most outspoken players in the NFL, told CNN, “I personally do not anticipate attending [the White House].”
During Super Bowl 52, Jenkins and the Eagles continued with a subliminal protest against the criminal justice system. When the Eagles’ players entered the field, they came out to Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares.” Meek Mill is serving time in prison for a parole violation.
Defensive end Chris Long, who boycotted last year’s White House visit with the Patriots, also told that he has no plans to shake hands with Trump.
“No, I’m not going to the White House. Are you kidding me?” he said during an interview on Pardon My Take Podcast last Sunday when asked whether he would go this time.
LeGarrette Blount, also a former Patriot, skipped last year too. “I just don’t feel welcome into that house? he said, adding that “I’m just gonna leave it at that”.
Eagles’ player Torrey Smith have also said that he will not visit the White House.
