Some Eagles to skip visit to White House

ReutersSafety Malcolm Jenkins intends to skip the traditional White House visit after the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history on Sunday night.

Jenkins, wideout Torrey Smith and defensive end Chris Long are among several Eagles players who have already indicated that they will not participate in the visit, citing their opposition to President Donald Trump.

“Nah, I personally do not anticipate attending,” Jenkins told CNN’s “New Day” on Monday, following the Eagles’ 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia will host a victory parade Thursday for the Eagles. City officials confirmed Monday that the parade will start at 11 a.m. at Broad and Pattison in south Philadelphia.
