“Grew up my whole life watching teams win championships and then go to the White House and get recognized for their greatness regardless of who is in office,” he tweeted. “I think it’s a unique opportunity to experience our nation’s capital.”
Coach Andy Reid agrees with Kelce. As noted previously by The Daily Wire, he said the prospect of a White House invitation would be “quite an honor.” “I mean, I’ll be there,” Reid. said “If they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor.”
However, at least one player is not as excited as Kelce. Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark said he has “mixed emotions” about the White House visit.
“I know historically … that’s something you do as a Super Bowl champion,” he said. “But we’ll see, man. It’s a lot of mixed emotions about stuff going on there. We’ll see.”
Trump tweeted his congratulations to the team after its victory, saying, “Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game and a fantastic comeback under immense pressure, We are proud of you and the great state of Missouri. You are true champions!”
