Patriots' Harmon says he won't visit White House

In an interview after Sunday night's game, Harmon told TMZ, "They don't want me in the White House".

New England Patriots safety Duron Harmon said Sunday he won't visit White House for a celebratory Super Bowl event, which is traditional after professional sports teams win championships.

The New England Patriots may have just won the Super Bowl, but it turns out not all their players are that fond of President Trump.

"It would be dope", Harmon said of instead meeting with President Barack Obama, as the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors did earlier this year.

"We love you over here, man", Harmon said, referring to Obama.

Trump has previously touted his friendship with Patriots coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft.

Devin flat-out said he is not going to go. Others were protesting the president's divisive rhetoric, however.

Harmon skipped the White House two years ago after the Patriots rallied to beat the Falcons, and when asked by Sports Illustrated on Thursday if he'd attend should the Patriots win, Harmon made it clear where he stands.

The Associated Press' Jimmy Golen reported that Devin McCourty then "playfully accused him of lying and Jason agreed there was virtually zero chance he would go".

The president traditionally hosts the winning Super Bowl team every year at the White House. "They don't want me in the White House, man".

That followed Trump's tweeted declaration the preceding September that the Warriors' invitation was "withdrawn", because of "hesitation" by Golden State star Stephen Curry.

Donald Trump is their president, whether they like it or not.
