Super Bowl winning player confirm he won't meet with Trump, but says he will meet with Obama
It is customary that the Super Bowl winning team visit the White House after the big game.
It is somewhat of a tradition in America that teams who win major sporting competitions would soon after visit the President in the White House, to celebrate the achievement.
Well, we should say that this was a tradition in America.
A more recent tradition has been athletes, and teams in general, refusing to meet with President Trump, due to his controversial beliefs and policies.
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.
And now it looks like a Super Bowl winner is going to be following suit and doing the same.
Duron Harmon of the New England Patriots told TMZ that he will not be visiting the White House, saying: "They don’t want me in the White House."
He was then asked if he would like to meet Obama instead, to which he replied: "That would be dope. Hey, Obama, man, come holler at me. We love you over here."
It would be great to see Obama accept his offer.
