Patriots Compare Comeback Super Bowl Win to Trump's Presidential Race

President Donald Trump welcomed the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots to the White House on Wednesday, describing their comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons as "legendary".

A total of 34 Patriots players attended the White House ceremony, the team told NFL Network's Kimberly Jones.

"Whether you're trying to win a Super Bowl or rebuild our country, as Coach Bill Belichick would say, there are no days off", Trump began. Tom Brady bowed out of the event early Wednesday morning citing "personal family matters". Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in future years, we will be back on the South Lawn again soon. "Have a great day!" he said in the statement.

As Belichick and Kraft looked on - Gronkowski grinning in the back row alongside his teammates, Brady and McCourty and Amendola spending their day elsewhere, the details of Hernandez's final moments beginning to trickle out - a odd day continued to unfold.

"This Super Bowl victory was a complete team effort, and that's the beauty of what they do". Brady's mother has been battling cancer for roughly two years.

Trump's welcome to the team was coming hours after the news from MA prisons officials that ex-Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in his prison cell.

The Patriots declined further comment.

It seems that the team was slightly more enthusiastic about their White House trip after the 2014 season, because a total of 50 players attended the D.C. ceremony while Barack Obama was president. If you're thinking that maybe Trump just made a decision to not mention any of the players who skipped out on the White House visit, that doesn't seem to be the case because Danny Amendola - who wasn't in attendance - got a shout-out during the speech.

There were other reasons for player absences, however.

President Donald Trump is saluting the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots at the White House.

He also addressed how proud he is that several Patriots, including Belichick and Kraft, have ties to the military and are "big supporters".

Trump's choice for deputy secretary of commerce, Chicago Cubs co-owner Todd Ricketts, has withdrawn his nomination, a source says, amid reports of difficulties untangling his financial holdings to the satisfaction of the government ethics watchdog.

Bennett is an outspoken supporter of the "Black Lives Matter" movement and has used his social media platforms to criticize Trump and speak out on social issues. "That game will last forever", he added. The handsome star quarterback whom Trump has called a "friend", a "great guy" and a "total winner"?

"I think I got this, but thank you", the spokesman replied.

"I don't feel accepted in the White House", McCourty said of his reason for boycotting the event. "I'll leave it at that". Hightower said he had "been there, done that", after he visited the White House as a member of Alabama's national championship team in 2012.
