Martellus Bennett made headlines when he said he wouldn't visit the White House after his New England Patriots won Super Bowl LI.

"I don't feel accepted in the White House," McCourty said. 

Both Bennett and McCourty have supported past protests, and raised their fists during the national anthem as Colin Kaepernick's protests drew national headlines.

"With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won't," McCourty said.

Trump is a Patriots fan. Or, at least, a fan of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft.
