Despite what some may think, not every New England Patriots player is gung-ho about visiting President Donald Trump in the White House.
Following the Patriots' Super Bowl LIII win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night, safety Duron Harmon told TMZ Sports he won't attend the White House for the customary trip of championship teams visiting the Oval Office.
"Nah, man," Harmon said. "They don't want me in the White House, man."
Later Monday, safety Devin McCourty told the Associated Press that he'll skip the White House, too, and McCourty's twin brother and teammate, cornerback Jason McCourty, said he doubts he would make the trip if the team is invited.
Harmon then was asked if he'd like to take the lead of the Golden State Warriors, who visited former President Barack Obama instead of Trump earlier this year to celebrate their 2018 NBA title.
"Yeah, that would be dope," Harmon responded. "Hey Obama, come holler at me, man! We love you over here, man!"
The Patriots are just hours removed from their sixth Super Bowl title, so it's unclear if and when a White House visit will happen.
The visits rarely have full attendance, as just 34 players visited Trump in Washington, D.C. following New England's Super Bowl LI win over the Atlanta Falcons in 2017. Team owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick both have supported Trump in the past and would be expected to attend.
Devin McCourty also said Monday he wasn’t ready to think about whether he’d play next season after he was asked by the media last week about the possibility of retirement. Devin just finished his ninth season in the NFL, all with the Patriots. Jason, in his first season with the Patriots, carried the Lombardi Trophy off the team bus when the Patriots returned to Gillette Stadium on Monday.
