According to a report in British tabloid, The Sun, the Rooneys were surprised to receive the invitation and their reason for the visit was personal and not political. "Coleen and Wayne were stunned when they received a personal invite from Trump inviting them to the White House. It wasn't political.

For them, this was a chance to go inside one of the most iconic buildings in the world and give their children this experience of being there for the Christmas party, which is always spectacular.

"They were also given a guided tour of President's Trump's private rooms but the Oval Office was off limits. Trump invited them because of his son Barron and how much he loves the team," a source told the tabloid.
