The debate over the Eagles not attending the White House Celebration continues

President Trump extended an invitation to the Philadelphia Eagles to join him at the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win on Tuesday, June 5th. However, the day before on June 4th, the president tweeted out that the Eagles will no longer be attending. The president's tweet caused speculation that the reasoning behind the Eagles not wanting to attend the event was due to policies put in place not allowing players to kneel during the national anthem.

President Trump did go forward with the celebration, having a Marine band sing the national anthem as well as "God Bless America."
