Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce is a pop culture phenomenon thanks to his relationship with Taylor Swift.

Democrats are used to celebrities like Kelce serving as ambassadors for the party.

But Travis Kelce made a promise to Donald Trump that Joe Biden will hate.

Travis Kelce says he will visit the White House no matter who is there

On the latest episode of Travis and Jason Kelce’s New Heights podcast, Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce discussed his team’s recent visit to the White House.

The visit attracted attention for President Joe Biden making a fool out of himself by donning an oversized Chiefs helmet.

Nevertheless, Kelce said it was an honor to attend the White House ceremony.

“It’s always an honor to go to the White House,” Kelce stated.

Kelce said he considers it a privilege to meet the President of the United States and he will attend the ceremony every time no matter what.

“I kinda mentioned it last time, any time I get a chance to be recognized by the President of the United States and get to go with my teammates and a group of men and women that I had success with to the point we get acknowledged… I’m doing it every time, no matter who’s up there at the helm. No matter what’s going on in this world. It’s just such a cool opportunity,” Kelce said as he got more serious about the issue.

That means if former President Donald Trump returns to the White House, Kelce won’t be one of these athletes who tried to turn the ceremony into their political soapbox by making a public stink about boycotting.

“I think representing the Chiefs up there, I wanted to do that for the Hunt family and all our coaches. I wanted to make sure I remembered that and got all those pictures and memories in the bank with them,” Kelce concluded.

When Trump was President the White House visit turned political

In 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles – where Travis’ brother Jason played – were disinvited from the White House over their national anthem protest.

Few players planned to attend so Trump pulled the invite.

“They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country,” a White House statement read.

The national anthem protests became a major story the previous fall when Trump said owners would become heroes if they fired players who followed anti-American quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s lead and kneeled during the national anthem.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired,'” Trump told a crowd at a rally in Alabama.

“You know, some owner is going to do that. He’s going to say, ‘That guy that disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it [but] they’ll be the most popular person in this country,” Trump continued.

“For a week, (that owner would) be the most popular person in this country. Because that’s a total disrespect of our heritage. That’s a total disrespect for everything we stand for,” Trump concluded.

If Trump wins the Presidency again in November, it will be interesting to see if the media and woke fans begin pressuring teams to boycott in protest of him.
