Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he would go to the White House to celebrate winning Super Bowl LIV.
Reid said: “If they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor, I think.”
The Chiefs coach may set off a firestorm in the NFL with the “social justice” crowd who denounced President Trump for calling for the players to stop kneeling during the National Anthem two years ago.

The past two years have been controversial with the Philadelphia Eagles having their 2018 invite revoked by President Trump and in 2019 the New England Patriots chose not to go to the White House.
This was during the criticism of President Trump and the NFL regarding the National Anthem controversy. There was opposition to the players taking a knee for the Black Lives Matter movement.
President Trump tweeted a hint that he would invite the Chiefs when he congratulated them after the big game on Sunday.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and other Chiefs players haven’t spoken out about whether they would go to the White House for a celebration.
