It started with New England’s tight end Martellus Bennett that announced that he would not make the trip to the White House. Now, a fourth player from the Super Bowl champion’s has announced that he will be skipping out on the visit.
Defensive end Chris Long tweeted out on Thursday announcing that he “planned on skipping” the visit.
His announcement came after three other players had announce their boycott: linebacker Dont’a Hightower, defensive back Devin McCourty and tight end Martellus Bennett
Devon McCourty told Time magazine that he doesn’t “feel accepted” at the White House.
“I’m not going to the White House. Basic reason for me is I don’t feel accepted in the White House. With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won’t.”
Bennett also shared his opinion about the president.
“I don’t support the guy that’s in the house,” Bennett said.
So far no one else has planned on skipping out. Trump has a personal friendship with a few members from the team, including star quarter back Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick, and team owner Robert Kraft.
