The NFL has come under fire for its travel agents after it was revealed that some agents got to meet the President of the United States during a White House trip.
The Washington Post published a story on Thursday about a series of interactions between agents and the president during his trip to New York.
In some cases, agents were seen talking with the president in the Oval Office, and others were seen speaking with him by phone.
The White House declined to comment.
The story said that the White Street Travel Association (WHTA) agent with whom Trump spoke to the President was one of the people who had a personal relationship with the White Houses chief of staff, Denis McDonough.
The WHTA did not respond to a request for comment.
A spokesperson for the WHTA said: “This was an incident that occurred at the White and Blue Club and it was completely inappropriate.
We would never engage in such behavior.”
The WHTA declined to discuss the nature of the relationship.
In response to the article, WHTA President Joe Breen said:”We’ve seen this type of behaviour before.
We’ve seen agents doing this, but nothing that is ever considered appropriate.
The travel agents are doing the right thing.
They’re representing the league, they’re representing players and they’re trying to make it as easy as possible for fans to get to the games.
It’s not right.”
The Washington Redskins declined to respond to the WHTAs comments.
According to a report by the Associated Press, one agent was filmed sitting on the president’s lap while he was speaking to the NFL.
The NFL has said that it is investigating the incident, and the White Palace has said it would not comment on its interactions with the agents.
The White House did not immediately respond to The Associated Press request for a comment.
