President Trump Yanks White House Invite To NFL Team
President Trump caused controversy, and liberal outrage, when he pulled an invite to the super bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. But the president did not stop there. He went further, slamming NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem.
According to Fox News:

President Trump fired back Tuesday amid the Philadelphia furor over his decision to disinvite the Eagles from a White House event, touting a patriotic ceremony being held instead and declaring: “No escaping to Locker Rooms!”

Trump triggered a backlash from the City of Brotherly Love after he rescinded his invitation for the Super Bowl champions amid the controversy over national anthem protests. 

The White House is instead hosting a "Celebration of America" event on Tuesday. 

“We will proudly be playing the National Anthem and other wonderful music celebrating our Country today at 3 P.M., The White House, with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus. Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!” Trump tweeted early Tuesday.

  In another power move from the president, he managed to stir up controversy and stand strong on his opposition to the anthem protests.
