Which Patriots player is already boycotting customary trip to White House because of Trump?

That didn’t take long.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick and Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady may have an affinity for President Donald Trump, but one player on the team has already said he will skip the customary visit to the White House.

Tight end Martellus Bennett, who has been clear about not supporting Trump, said he will not go when the Patriots make the trip to Washington to celebrate Sunday’s Super Bowl win, The Dallas Morning News’ Brandon George reported.

“It is what it is, people know how I feel about it,” Bennett said. “Just follow me on Twitter.”

An example can be seen in a tweet from Bennett after Trump signed the executive order on immigration and refugees.

The player told George he’s not worried about what the team owner may think about his decision.

“I’m not really worried about that,” Bennett said. “I’m not worried about it at all.”

Belichick is a no-nonsense coach in every sense of the word and Bennett said when it comes to politics, “You just don’t bring that to work.”

…though it seems he just did.
