Patriots LB Dont’a Hightower Will Skip White House Trip To See Trump: ‘Been There, Done That.’
That is now three Patriots that won’t be making the trip to the White House.
New England Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower is the latest member of the Super Bowl champions to opt out of visiting the White House, but according to him, it has nothing to do with anything political.
On Wednesday’s edition of “SportsCenter,” Hightower stated he won’t be joining his teammates on the trip to the White House and it’s not because Donald Trump is in office.
LB Dont’a Hightower says on @SportsCenter he will not go to the White House. He says it’s not anything specific to the president.
