WASHINGTON (NBC News)– In a late night tweet, President Trump took another shot at the Philadelphia Eagles.

The president says the White House event with the Super Bowl champions was canceled because only a few players decided to come.

President Trump cited the national anthem controversy as the reason for the cancellation.

The president says the White House will still hold a ceremony that will quote "celebrate America."

Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey said he’ll skip the quote "political stunt at the White House."

And Senator Casey invited the Eagles to the US capitol for a tour.
