Feb 06, 2017
New England Patriots tight end, Martellus Bennett, said that he will not visit the White House.
New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, and team quarterback, Tom Brady have been connected to the Trump presidential campaign.
"I haven't thought about it. I am not going to go," said Bennett. "I can elaborate later on in life; right now I am just trying to enjoy this ... People know how I feel about it, just follow me on Twitter."
New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, and team quarterback, Tom Brady have been connected to the Trump presidential campaign. President Trump said that Brady called to congratulate him after his general election win.
"I have called him, yes, in the past," responded Brady to the reports. "Sometimes he calls me. Sometimes I call him. But, again, that's been someone I've known. I always try to keep it in context because for 16 years you know someone before maybe he was in the position that he was in. He's been very supportive of me for a long time. It's just a friendship. I have a lot of friends. I call a lot of people."
"You just don't bring that to work. We all have our beliefs. We accept people for who they are," said Bennett.
It is customary for the champions of the four major sports in the United States of America, (football, basketball, baseball, and hockey) to visit the White House after they are crowned. Certain National Hockey League players expressed that they would not visit former U.S. President Barack Obama.
