President Trump Calls Off Eagles Visit to the White House Over Anthem Dispute

President Donald Trump has called off a visit by the Super Bowl Champion Eagles to the White House Tuesday due to the dispute over whether NFL players must stand during the playing of the national anthem, the Associated Press reports.

Trump says in a statement that some members of the Super Bowl championship team “disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart.”

Trump says the team wanted to send a smaller delegation, but fans who planned to attend “deserve better.”

He says he’ll instead be hosting “a different type of ceremony” with the U.S. Marine Band.
