Jenkins and Long each said recently they wouldn't attend the White House.

One White House aide noted that, while the political team wants to prioritize "friends" of the President when making decisions about who to help, the situation for Republicans this year is too perilous to exclude everyone who has ever broken with Trump.

Last month, the National Football League announced it will allow players to remain in the locker room while the anthem plays but will fine players and other personnel on the field who "do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem". In another, he said Trump's decision was a let-down for those who support him.

Berman noted that no Eagles players kneeled during the anthem a year ago, but Conway asked to "unpack that separately".

The President cited the national anthem as the reason for canceling the visit, with the Eagles expected to send only a small contingent.
