Patriots Defend Photo Showing Smaller Group for Trump's White House Visit than the 2015 Obama Visit

The New England Patriots are disputing a photo tweeted by The New York Times that seemed to show a much bigger turnout for the team’s White House visit with President Barack Obama in 2015 than with President Donald Trump on Wednesday. The newspaper’s post showed an Associated Press photo of the Super Bowl champions standing behind Obama on the south side of the White House from two years ago in which stairs on either side of the main group were filled with members of the NFL organization.
