Patriots star declines visit to the White House: he'd rather visit former President Obama

Duron Harmon of the New England Patriots has revealed that he will turn down an invitation to visit the White House and meet President Donald Trump.

The New England Patriots are still celebrating their 13 - 3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams at the 2019 Super Bowl, and perhaps eagerly anticipating an invitation to the White House. 

One of the game's most valuable players, safety Duron Harmon, has already expressed his intentions on such a possibility in no uncertain terms.

"They don't want me in the White House."

DURON HARMON WON'T GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE

For Patriots fans the 2019 Super Bowl was the biggest celebration ever, with their team taking its 6th SuperBowl. The victory was thanks, in no small part, to Harmon, who stepped in when Patrick Chung was injured and played the game of his life. 

Harmon was interviewed after the game on his way to a celebration with Snoop, Cardi B and Meek Mill - but he said he would not be going to the White House to meet President Donald Trump.

This brings the actual number of potential absentees for a possible visit to the White House to 4.

HARMON WOULD RATHER MEET OBAMA

Harmon made no bones about his decision, adding insult to injury by confiding that he's much rather meet former President Barack Obama.

In 2017, the Patriots also won the Super Bowl, but star quarterback Tom Brady also refused to go to the White House with the team after his wife Gisele Bundchen criticized President Trump.

DEVIN MCCOURTY WON'T GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE EITHER

The New England Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty who has played all nine of his NFL seasons with the team has joined Harmon in his decision not to go to the White House if the invitation is extended.

 

MCCOURTY'S TWIN MAY ALSO REFUSE PRESIDENTIAL INVITE

Devin's teammate and twin brother Jason has also said he would probably not be going with the team either. Although less peremptory in his statement, Jason said:

"I haven't thought about it, but I highly doubt it."

This brings the actual number of potential absentees for a possible visit to the White House to 4.

How many more members of the Patriots may join, Brady, Harmon, and the McCourtys are yet unknown.

THE MCCOURTY BROTHERS MAKE HISTORY AT THE SUPER BOWL

The Patriots made history at the Super Bowl when they fielded Jason and Devin McCourty.

The two men are the first set of twins ever to play in a Super Bowl, though it is the third time Devin represents the Patriots at the prestigious match.

Jason played for the Tennessee Titans eight seasons and one with the Cleveland Browns; while Devin was drafted into the Patriots in 2010.

In 2018 Jason was invited to join the Patriots after his brother texted Coach Bill Belichick:

"Two McCourtys are better than one." 

An hour later Belichick called Devin, and Jason was the newest draft pick for the Patriots. The rest, as they say, is Super Bowl history.
