'They don't want me': Patriots' Duron Harmon will refuse White House invitation

Duron Harmon

Despite President Donald Trump's constant claims that "everyone" wants to visit the White House, a New England Patriot has announced that he will not go to DC with the team.

The McCourty's comments came just a day after Patriots safety Duron Harmon said he would not go to the White House either, hinting he felt he would be persona non grata.

However, Harmon expressed interest in following the lead of the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors: visiting former President Obama.

Duron Harmon, 28, told TMZ Sports after the game that he won't join his teammates for a trip to Washington, D.C.

While some championship teams have stayed away from White House visits, the Patriots are not one of them. 'They don't want me in the White House'. In addition, quarterback Tom Brady has been a golfing partner of Trump's and a "Make America Great Again" hat was spotted in his locker in 2015.




Harmon is the first Patriots player to indicate that he would skip out on the celebration at the White House of their 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

President Trump past year rescinded his invitation to the Philadelphia Eagles after learning that the majority of the team were not planning on attending.

"I've known [Trump] since 2002 when I judged one of his beauty pageants ... so I've known him for a long time", Brady admitted during a 2015 interview on the Dennis and Callahan Interview Morning Show.

The Patriots have not yet officially been invited the White House this year. However, he would be excited to meet former President Obama instead.
