New England Patriots safety Duron Harmon said that he has no intentions of visiting President Trump’s White House to celebrate the team’s Super Bowl win.
During an interview with TMZ Sunday night following the Patriots’ victory over the Los Angeles Rams, the 28-year-old athlete said he wouldn’t join his teammates for a visit.
“They don’t want me in the White House,” said Harmon.
He did, however, acknowledge it “would be dope” to meet former President Obama, like the Golden State Warriors did earlier this year.
“Hey, Obama, come holler at me, man,” Harmon said, referring to Obama. “We love you over here.”
When the Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2017, several players, including Harmon, refused to visit the White House, some citing lack of support for Trump.
Trump, a fan of the Patriots, is friends with quarterback Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick, and owner Robert Kraft.
“People love to come to the White House,” Trump told CBS News in an interview on Sunday. “So the Patriots were here two years ago, and I’m sure they’ll be back.”
