A number of journalists and Trump critics denounced Huckabee Sanders's characterization of the matter as a simple difference of opinion between the reporter and the White House-rather than a question of misleading statements by the president.

The Pittsburgh Penguins made their polarizing trip with the Stanley Cup to the White House on Tuesday, drawing plenty of criticism on Twitter.

Pittsburgh came to Washington, D.C., a day ahead of its matchup with the Washington Capitals to celebrate its fifth Stanley Cup win in 2016-17.

The press office in Trump's White House has seen particularly unusual challenges in effectively sharing the White House's message as the President regularly uses social media to directly address the public. Trump later rescinded a White House invitation to the National Basketball Association team.

Crosby has said on multiple occasions that the team's decision to go to the White House was not politically motivated.

Trump called the Penguins "incredible patriots", while the team said the visit had nothing to do with politics. "We are simply honoring our championship and the accomplishments of this group of players over this season or the last two seasons".

"This is really a truly great group of world champions", Trump said. Instead, head coach Mike Sullivan reiterated that the visit is "not political". That's how I kind of grew up playing hockey. Sullivan said he wouldn't have a problem if one of his players took a knee during the national anthem.

The Penguins had one black player on their championship team, Trevor Daley, but he signed with Detroit in the offseason and did not travel to Washington because the Red Wings were playing in Dallas.

Gidley confirmed to CNN he will be joining the White House.

"Obviously there's been issues but I'm not that political", he said.
