One by one, black New England Patriots players are refusing to visit Donald Trump’s White House

  • It’s tradition for the team who wins the Super Bowl to visit the White House after their victory. 
  • But at least two members of the New England Patriots are turning down the invitation this year because of Trump.
  • “I’m not going to the White House,” the Patriots’ Devin McCourty told Time in a text message Monday. “Basic reason for me is I don’t feel accepted in the White House. With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won’t.”
  • McCourty joined tight end Martellus Bennett, who confirmed on Sunday that he also would not make the White House trip, after first announcing his decision to skip it the week prior. Read more

I’m sure there are things we can do better. Gotta watch the film, but it was a great team win. We have a group of guys that come in here each and every day, bring the hard hat and lunch pail and work our tails off. A lot of people don’t understand the kind of work that we put in. We’re here in this building a lot. We take pride in our preparation. It’s been showing these past three weeks. We have to continue to try to do that. - Julian Edelman
