“Our party was bigger than yours,” Jane Slusser tweeted in response to Trump’s decision to rescind the Eagles’ invitation to the White House because not all of the players wanted to attend.

A statement issued by the White House said that the Eagles were “unable” to attend the event with their full team and that fans “deserve better” than the smaller delegation the team wanted to send.

The White House cited players’ disagreement with Trump on NFL players’ right to kneel in protest during the national anthem.

It was reported that fewer than 10 players planned to attend the event on Tuesday.

Kenney harshly criticized Trump’s move, calling him a “fragile egomaniac” in a statement.

“Disinviting them from the White House only proves that our President is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party to which no one wants to attend,” he said.

Two Democratic Pennsylvania lawmakers invited the team to visit the Capitol instead of the White House following Trump's snub.

The White House is instead holding an event for Eagles fans, now dubbed “Celebration of America.” The statement said they plan to “loudly and proudly” play the national anthem at the event.
