White House Patriots Crowd Size Stirs Controversy

On Wednesday, President Trump welcomed the New England Patriots to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win. The New York Times tweeted a photo comparing the photo of the Patriots Wednesday meeting at the White House and when the team met President Obama in 2015. The photo makes it clear there are more people in 2015 than on Wednesday.
According to The New York Times, 34 team members attended the ceremony at Wednesday, compared to “about 50” who attended in 2015.
But the team said the overall delegation, which includes team staff, was about the same. During the ceremony, President Trump said owner Bob Craft has “been my friend for a long time.”
The New England Patriots responded by tweeting that the photos “lack context.” They wrote that in 2015, 40 football staff members stood on the steps and this year, those staff members sat on the lawn.
