The Philadelphia Eagles are not visiting the White House today, as President Trump announced late on Monday night that he had cancelled the franchise's scheduled visit after several members of the team had decided to not come.

The White House is still hosting an event this afternoon, though.

"We will proudly be playing the National Anthem and other wonderful music celebrating our Country today at 3 P.M., The White House, with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus. Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!

We have had many Championship teams recently at the White House including the Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Penguins, New England Patriots, Alabama and Clemson National Champions, and many others. National Anthem & more great music today at 3:00 P.M." he tweeted.

Video has surfaced of this afternoon's ceremony at the White House.

Trump, according to some watching, appeared to forget the words to God Bless America.
