Trump says will not invite either NBA finals winner to White House

SPORTSPresident Donald Trump won't invite NBA champion to White HouseSHARE:sharetweetshareemail

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday urged the Washington Capitals to come to the White House to celebrate their Stanley Cup championship but said the victor of the National Basketball Association title would not be invited. When told of LeBron's comments, Curry said that he agreed players from either team won't want an invite. "No, I didn't invite Lebron James and I didn't invite Steph Curry".

Trump pointed out that he's had several championship teams at the White House, including the NFL's New England Patriots and the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins. When the Golden State Warriors won the championship last year, he denied the invitation to go last year.

President Donald Trump said during a wide-ranging but impromptu back and forth with reporters today that he won't invite the victor of the National Basketball Association championship series to the White House - no matter who prevails between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

"I'm not surprised. It's typical of him", James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump's decision to cancel. "I know whoever wins this series, us or Golden State, no one wants an invite". "It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going".

The Warriors clinched back-to-back championships Friday night by defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85, completing a four-game sweep in the NBA Finals. We're not going to invite either team,"Trump said to reporters".

California is key to Democrats' hopes of gaining a majority in the 435-seat House, which would require flipping 23 seats. Mike Levin is running to represent the Democrats in Southern California's 49th Congressional district.

Trump issued his invitation and snub amid a divisive controversy that resulted in the Philadelphia Eagles, winners of the National Football League's Super Bowl this year, not making the trip to see the president that championship teams traditionally make. The president congratulated the team on Twitter earlier Friday. But it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do.

There has been clear tension between many star athletes and the current administration throughout the Trump presidency.

Trump pointed out that he has had several championship teams at the White House. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

Curry at the time said he wanted his team to forego the White House visit as a protest against Trump and to "inspire" change. We're going to focus on the game tonight. So the photo op don't look bad.

"I agree with LeBron", he said, viaThe Hollywood Reporter. We get it at this point.
