Ex-Eagles WR Torrey Smith blasts Trump for ‘cowardly’ decision

Torrey Smith

One of the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl champions has spoken out about Donald Trump’s controversial decision.

Torrey Smith, who was a wide receiver on the Eagles team that won the Super Bowl last season, addressed Trump’s announcement that the Eagles’ Tuesday visit to the White House has been cancelled.

Smith, who is now with the Carolina Panthers, says not many Eagles were going to attend and that nobody refused to attend over the anthem controversy.

Smith also called Trump’s cancellation a “cowardly act.”

Trump’s decision to cancel the visit seemed to be one to save face. A report says fewer than 10 Eagles players were going to attend, so the president likely wanted to avoid the embarrassment of having such a small crowd that would have surely led to mocking.
