TRUMP CANCELS EAGLES RECEPTION AMID NATIONAL ANTHEM PROTESTS

President Donald Trump canceled a planned reception for Superbowl champions Philadelphia Eagles after many players would not attend due to his position on the national anthem.

“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country,” Trump said in a Monday evening statement.

“The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better. These fans are still invited to the White House to be part of a different type of ceremony—one that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem. 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 continued.

I think one of the silliest things I have seen, and this started when Obama was in office, is the I don't agree with the politics of the President so I am not going to attend. It really is asinine.

I think this tradition will be going away completely very soon.
