Ex-Philadelphia Eagles player defends former team: Trump made a poor decision

Ex-Philadelphia Eagles player defends former team: Trump made a poor decision

He was also among the Eagles who had previously said they wouldn't attend a ceremony at the White House if invited.

The story of the Philadelphia Eagles versus President Donald Trump has pretty much dominated news cycles this week here in Philly.

I know a guy from the Eagles, wide receiver who played on the Super Bowl-winning team previous year, and he broke it down pretty verbatim of how his process went with his discussions with his teammates and how he wanted to keep the focus on what the conversation should be and not the anthem and not Trump's policies and how he's been overshadowing the National Football League and all that type of stuff.

Earlier this week, Melania Trump had attended her first White House event in weeks, hosting a reception on Tuesday for the families of slain US military service members, though that event was closed to the media. Trump says the press has been "so unfair, and vicious".

"People are busy during the off season during this time", he said.

Players will be available after the afternoon practice and Jenkins is likely to be one of the first interviewed.

After the public called Fox out for spreading false information, Christopher Wallace, the executive producer of FOX News @ Night with Shannon Bream, has now admitted that the network made a mistake during their Monday night broadcast when they used footage of Eagles players kneeling during a segment about Trump's cancellation.

A guest at President Donald Trump's White House event on Tuesday apparently took a knee during the national anthem.

The Eagles players said the issue isn't really a galvanizing force for the team because it is already unified.

On Tuesday, basketball stars Lebron James and Stephen Curry of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors stated that regardless of who wins the NBA finals, neither of their teams would want to visit the White House. "It's over. What you've seen and what you've heard is enough", he said. And while the Eagles have been among the league's most outspoken teams on these issues, Philadelphia players neither knelt nor remained in the locker room for the anthem during the 2017 campaign, according to SportsPundit.com, which tracked protests last season. I'm not too into politics, so I don't know all his other views, but his rhetoric I definitely don't agree with.
