Last night the New England Patriots made the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history and took the win over the Atlanta Falcons, and just like they do every year, they will be making a visit to the White House to see the president. One member of the Super Bowl LI winners has said he will not be making the visit.
Martellus Bennett, the team’s tight end, spoke out and said he will not be paying a visit to Donald Trump. “I’m not going to go,” Bennett told reporters Sunday night.
When asked why, Bennett responded, “like I said, you know, it is what it is. People know how I feel about it. Just follow me on Twitter.”
Bennett was an advocate supporter of Hillary Clinton during the elections, while repeatedly criticizing Trump. “I don’t support the guy that’s in the house,” Bennett said when asked to explain.
“America was built on inclusiveness not exclusiveness,” Bennett tweeted last month.

Bennett might be the only one to boycott this visit to Trump. Team owner Robert Kraft and star quarterback are both good friends of the president.
