But Philadelphia’s mayor, Jim Kenney blasted Trump as a “no true patriot” and “fragile egomaniac” on the movement.

“Disinviting you prove from the White house that our President is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac obsessed with it, to throw the quantity, size and the fear of the embarrassment of having to visit a party, nobody wants it,” Kenney said in a statement.

Last month, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the League would fine teams and the League staff will not “stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.” Goodell said the League decided unanimously that the vote, although the San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York abstained.
