Trump sings the national anthem during a "Celebration of America" event on the South Lawn of the White House on Tuesday. The event was staged as a replacement for a White House visit by the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Some team members were planning to boycott the event due to Trump's stance on players kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games, so Trump rescinded their invitation. Photo by Pete Marovich/UPI
