President Donald Trump spoke out about the whirlwind he caused, by uninviting the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House ceremony.


In a tweet President Trump said: "The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House. Unfortunately, only a small number of players decided to come, and we canceled the event. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling. Sorry!"

CNN's Don Lemon remind viewers on Monday night that not one Eagles player kneeled during the season and called President Trumps's actions a political stunt.

Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney said President Trump "is the most disrespectful person on earth," during an interview with Lemon.
