Minus two dozen, New England Patriots visit Trump

"In that same year a very good friend of mine for over 25 years, a man who is mentally tough and hard-working as anybody I know launched a campaign for the presidency against 16 career politicians facing odds nearly as long as we faced in the fourth quarter".

In 2015, the Patriots had won their first Super Bowl in 11 years and most of the players were enjoying their first opportunity to visit the White House.

After the triumphant victory, tight end Martellus Bennett quickly made it clear he was not coming to the White House and other teammates followed.

Jamaican-born National Football League player, Patrick Chung, was among 30 other members of the Super Bowl 2017 winning New England Patriots who skipped Donald Trump's invitation to the White House Wednesday.

A number of Patriots players declined to visit the White House this year for a variety of reasons. "But thank you", Spicer responded. According to a report in The New York Times, over two dozen members of the team did not attend the ceremony, including star quaterback (and President Donald Trump's personal friend) Tom Brady, who cited "family issues" as his reason for missing the event.

"Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in the future years, we will [be] back on the South Lawn again soon".

He jokingly asked Spicer whether he needed any help, drawing laughs. Kraft gave the money via his Kraft Group LLC. "With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won't", McCourty told TIME in February. That includes Brady in 2015.
