The reigning Super Bowl LIV champions could be taking a field trip to D.C. as soon as this week, according to President Trump. 

While speaking in the East Room of the White House last Thursday, President Trump said "the Super Bowl champions are coming, I think next week."

"Soon. Very soon," Trump reiterated in pool reports." "Every one of them want to be here. And the coach loves us. The coach is great -- Andy Reid."

In his postgame press conference immediately following the Super Bowl, Reid said he would visit the President's historic house to celebrate the victory.

"I mean, I'll be there," Reid said following his first Super Bowl victory. "I'll be there. If they're inviting us, I'll be there. It's quite an honor, I think."

Chiefs players have been divided over the celebratory tradition as most teams have since Trump took office in 2017. WR Tyreek Hill told the Kansas City Star "that would be great to go to the White House" since he has never visited to D.C. before. 

DE Frank Clark did not commit to celebrating the championship at the White House with his teammates because of "a lot of mixed emotions about stuff going on there."
