Eagles invited to visit White House on June 5

Eagles invited to visit White House on June 5

"At this point, I'm not interested in any discussions on anything right now just with the climate that's been going on in The White House", Jenkins said.

The Eagles released a statement saying they are in the process of working out the logistics of the visit. Jenkins told NBC10 that he will be in Washington with his teammates but won't go to the White House.

"I don't see it as beneficial at this moment in time to visit in a celebratory fashion". However Eagles fans responding to a poll on the matter voted 63% in favor of the team showing up on June 5th for their picture.

Just don't expect team leader and safety Malcolm Jenkins to be there. The final round of OTAs runs from June 4-7, leading into the mandatory minicamp in mid-June. Although the date could be an issue, it is also a time when (presumably) a large portion of the roster would be in Philadelphia.




The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly are going to be visiting the White House next month.

Before Donald Trump became president, the White House visit was basically a nice photo opportunity that saw pretty good attendance.

"Many of us have no interest in supporting President Trump", Lurie said in a recording of the meeting obtained by the New York Times.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. But this is not where you brandish a group of people, because they own assets in a sport we love, supporting what many of us perceive as, you know, one disastrous presidency". "It's one thing to have a fan say something on social media, but to have a high ranking official come out and single guys out, it lets guys know that their voices are needed to bring people together". "They'll be the most popular person in this country".
