President Trump held a “Celebration of America” event on the White House lawn today with members of the Army Chorus and Marine Band.
The event was held in place of a visit by the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles who were uninvited by Trump yesterday due to their disrespect for our National Anthem and our flag.
“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country. The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better. These fans are still invited to the White House to be part of a different type of ceremonyone that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem. I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America.”
Trump further called out the Eagles in a tweet today.
“The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House. Unfortunately, only a small number of players decided to come, and we canceled the event. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling. Sorry!”

The “Celebration of America” event went off as planned and started with the Army Chorus singing our National Anthem.
President Trump surprised everyone when instead of just putting his hand on his heart, he actually sang along with the Chorus.
After the incredible performance, Trump spoke briefly to the gathered crowd and reminded them of all we have to be thankful for in this country, thanks to those who have fought for our freedoms.
SHARE if you will always stand for our National Anthem and our flag!
