Multiple Patriots players have no interest in visiting the White House

"Nah", Harmon told TMZ after helping the Patriots claim their sixth Super Bowl title.

Golden State Warriors, who have won the NBA Championship twice in a row since Trump was elected, opted not to visit the White House after their wins, and just a few weeks ago, the Warriors were visiting Washington DC, and opted to visit former President Barack Obama instead of Donald Trump. "We love you over here man!" Last year, President Donald Trump abruptly disinvited 2018 Super Bowl champs the Philadelphia Eagles after almost all the players and coaches said they would boycott the visit over Trump's attacks on NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

The president traditionally hosts the winning Super Bowl team every year at the White House.

Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty told the Associated Press on Monday that he wouldn't join the Pats on the trip.

Harmon made his comments to a TMZ Sports interviewer while leaving Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium shortly after helping New England's defence lead the way in the low-scoring contest.

Lakers drop out of Anthony Davis sweepstakes after 'outrageous' request
The Pelicans believe that the Lakers' bid at the trade deadline will still be available to them in the offseason, sources said. No team is trading for Anthony Davis unless he's willing to be there for an extended period of time.

The Patriots aren't the only New England team set to visit the White House in the near future.

Brady said at the time that "personal family matters" kept him from going.

Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty were among the absentees as was Tom Brady. The president referred to the offerings as "Great American Food" and he said he paid for the "Hamberders" himself.

So far, at least three members of the winning team will not be making the trip.
