Patriots safety Duron Harmon has also said he would skip the White House visit.

"All said they hadn't thought about it yet except for safety Duron Harmon, who did not attend the Patriots" visit to the Trump White House after Super Bowl LI.

This past Sunday the New England Patriots went home as Super Bowl LIII Champions.

TMZ, of course, followed up by asking about the possibility of visiting President Obama instead, as the Golden State Warriors did earlier this year, and his response to that was, "It would be dope".

"Hey, Obama, come holler at me", Harmon told the outlet.

Russia's defence minister says the nation will develop land-based intermediate range missiles within two years. Or talks with Russian Federation could produce a commitment to limit the ground-launched missile's deployment.


Trump has previously touted his friendship with Patriots coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft. But several players, including Tom Brady, McCourty and Harmon, did not attend. I just feel like, for what he believes and what he says, it doesn't sit well with me, so there's no point in going there.

Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty told the Associated Press on Monday that he wouldn't join the Pats on the trip. He added there was "virtually zero chance he would go".

Harmon made his comments to a TMZ Sports interviewer while leaving Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium shortly after helping New England's defence lead the way in the low-scoring contest.

Harmon was one of many players who chose not to visit Donald Trump in 2017 after the Patriots won the Super Bowl.

Traditionally, the winning team's celebration includes a parade, a trip to Disney World, and a visit to the White House.
