Malcolm Jenkins responds to White House snub with signs

Malcolm Jenkins responds to White House snub with signs

At least two guests at President Donald Trump's event on Tuesday to highlight why Americans stand for the national anthem, which replaced the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl LII ceremony, opted to take a knee as the "Star Spangled Banner" rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. "It's over, behind us and we're moving on".

"She went through a little rough patch but she's doing great", he said.

Jenkins was one of several Eagles players who said before Trump's disinvite that they would not be going to the White House.

The first lady attended a White House event on Monday, her first public appearance since treatment last month for a "benign kidney condition".

Pederson would not delve into the details about Trump canceling the visit.

He also said, "What you've seen and what you've heard is enough". "... Our true fans, they're beside us, we're beside them".

Trump asks if Canada burnt down White House in call with PM
There is no doubt, though, that Trudeau is upset that the US would invoke security concerns as justification for the tariffs. On the agenda for the two-day summit will be economic growth, employment, gender equality, climate change and world peace.

"I was looking forward to it. Listen, you win a world championship or an NCAA title or anything, you want to be recognized that way", Pederson said, when asked if teams should just stop going to the White House altogether.

Along with teammate Chris Long, Jenkins has been among the most vocal players of the league's social-justice movement.

Among the handful of veteran players from the Super Bowl team who spoke, offensive linemen Jason Kelce and Brandon Brooks as well as tight end Zach Ertz declined to say whether they had planned to visit the White House before the cancellation.

"Instead the decision was made to lie, and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military", part of his statement read. Trump insinuates that protesters are anti-military and against the NFL new policy, which states that players must stand during the National Anthem unless they're in the locker room.

In his first remarks since President Trump called off the visit because of poor participation by the Philadelphia Eagles, the coach admitted that he was looking forward to the trip to Washington. "America has never experienced so many large-scale disasters in such a short period of time and we have the most qualified staff". Last month, in response to the National Football League owners' decision to punish kneeling, Trump said players who continue to protest "maybe shouldn't be in the country". "I think it's great". And so as players, I think it was left up to each individual what they wanted to do; they were gonna have some options.
