Patriots player: I won’t visit White House, but it ‘would be dope’ to meet Obama instead

New England Patriots player Duron Harmon said that he won’t visit President Trump’s White House to celebrate the team’s Super Bowl win.

Speaking to TMZ Sports after the Patriots’ win against the Los Angeles Rams, Harmon said he wouldn’t join his teammates for a visit.

“They don’t want me in the White House,” said Harmon, who plays safety for the Patriots.

He did, however, acknowledge it “would be dope” to meet former President Obama, like the Golden State Warriors did earlier this year.

When the Patriots last won the Super Bowl in 2017, a number of players, including Harmon, refused to visit the White House, some citing lack of support for Trump.

Trump is known to be a fan of the Patriots, however, and is friends with quarterback Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.

“People love to come to the White House,” Trump told CBS News in an interview on Sunday. “So the Patriots were here two years ago, and I’m sure they’ll be back.”

Last year, Trump disinvited Super Bowl champions the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, saying they “disagree with their President” about whether NFL players should be required to stand for the national anthem.

Trump also uninvited NBA champs the Golden State Warriors in 2017 after star player Stephen Curry said he did not want to visit the White House.
