I can't imagine a way I go there.
Martellus Bennett made headlines when he said he wouldn't visit the White House after his New England Patriots won Super Bowl LI.
He's not alone. Defensive back Devin McCourty also said he'd skip the visit, Time reports.
"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.
What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 6, 2017
Trump is a Patriots fan. Or, at least, a fan of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft.
But the team's ties to Trump do not concern Bennett or McCourty. Bennett said after his Super Bowl win that the team believes in "whatever I want to do."
