Bennett won't visit White House if Patriots win Super Bowl


You can add New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett to the list of athletes unsupportive of United States president Donald Trump.

Although quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick are reportedly friends with the 45th president of USA, Bennett told reporters at Monday's Super Bowl Opening Night that if the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons, he will not attend the team's trip to the White House.

"Most likely not," Bennett said after being asked if he would visit with Trump in office. "Because I don't support the person in it."

Bennett is the latest athlete to voice his disdain for Trump. 

From Los Angeles Lakers forward Luol Deng to NASCAR's most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr., sports figures across the world have criticised Trump's travel ban of immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations to USA.

Brady, meanwhile, was not interested in talking politics on Monday. 

"What's going on in the world? I haven't paid much attention. I'm just a positive person," he said.
