Fox’s Shannon Bream Apologizes On Air For ‘Unrelated’ Footage of NFL Players

Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a sworn deposition as part of Colin Kaepernick's grievance against National Football League owners that Trump told Jones he was very concerned with the debate over the anthem.

Last year, the White House canceled a visit by the National Basketball Association champions, the Golden State Warriors. but that was after it's star players said they wouldn't be going. "In other words, the vast majority of the Eagles team made a decision to abandon their fans".

This is a sad attempt by the White House to pit the Eagles against the president. Watching the entire Eagles community come together has been an inspiration.

"I was looking forward to going down".

Trump tweeted: "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!" he wrote. The president also promised to "loudly and proudly" play the national anthem at his event, which ended up lasting for about 10 minutes.

"He's basically making a very simple request that when the National Anthem is played at a sporting event, people stand, and people respect that and I know everybody saying but nobody need, nobody - they're obviously are some hurt feelings over the new policy".

Under a policy unveiled last month by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and welcomed by Trump, teams will be fined if players on the field fail to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner".

The NFL's players union said in a statement that it was "disappointed" by Trump's decision, noting it would lead to the cancellation of charity events in the Washington area.

The team was supposed to meet Trump Tuesday.

Sanders declined to address the inaccuracy, telling reporters, "I'm not going to go into detail and go into a back-and-forth". So Trump, to spare himself the snub, disinvited the team because, he said, they disagree with him about standing for the national anthem - even though all members of the Eagles stood for the anthem all season long.

One person set to attend the ceremony told The Associated Press less than half of the team's 53-man roster planned to go to the White House.

Trump has repeatedly decried the players' protest, referring to them as "sons of bitches" who should be fired at a rally for supporters in Alabama a year ago.

The Eagles tweeted a general thanks to the fans for their support.

In his earlier statement, Trump said the Eagles wanted to a send a smaller delegation, "but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better". They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations.

Instead, the team's fans gathered on the South Lawn heard a selection of patriotic songs, after President Trump dis-invited the team, when it became apparent only a handful of players were likely to show up to the event, as another battle in the unending culture wars played out over social media. "It's also fear of a president turning his base against a corporation".

Philadelphia's fans and teams aren't known for backing down from a fight.

The politics were already playing out in the state's Senate race, where Republican Rep. Lou Barletta is challenging Democrat Bob Casey.

Last year, 2017 National Basketball Association champion Golden State were similarly dis-invited from the White House by Trump after Warriors star Stephen Curry said he wouldn't attend.

This is called reporting the news and the facts.

Topic of conversation starts out with President Trump and the Philadelphia Eagles. The league came under intense pressure from the president last season when players knelt to protest police brutality and racism.
