Patriots’ Martellus Bennett Skips White House Trip After Historic Super Bowl Win

The New England Patriot’s Martellus Bennett says he will not be heading to the White House to pay President Trump a visit after the team’s big win at Super Bowl LI.

The Pats tight end isn’t allowing the victory get in the way of his personal beliefs. During an interview after the big game, Bennett told the Dallas Morning News, “I haven’t thought about it. I am not going to go,” he explained, “I can elaborate later on in life; right now I am just trying to enjoy this … People know how I feel about it, just follow me on Twitter.”

Owner of the Patriots, Robert Kraft and quarterback Tom Brady are both very fond of Trump. However, Bennett says “he’s not really worried” about the potential backlash he may face from his decision.

According to CNN, Bennett added that he and his teammates avoid politics in the locker room. He says “You just don’t bring that to work. We all have our beliefs. We accept people for who they are.”
