Trump won't invite National Basketball Association champions to White House

Both men said their teams would not visit the White House if invited.

What led up to this?

Trump canceled a visit by the Philadelphia Eagles to commemorate their Super Bowl win after most of the players decided they'd skip it.

Only a few members of the Eagles planned to attend the Tuesday event so Trump, who has lashed out at NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem before games, disinvited them.

LeBron James has no interest in any White House party with US President Donald Trump.

"When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them so the photo op don't look bad". And he was pretty sure that the Warriors were on the same page.

"It's typical of him. I know whoever wins this series, us or Golden State, no one wants an invite". "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going".

Additionally, Trump never extended a White House invite to the 2017 WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx. "I was going to go up and get the tip. At the end of the day, every team has an opportunity to make for themselves and speak for themselves - and that's powerful being in that situation".

"I agree with Bron", Curry said. "Pretty sure the way we handled things past year, kinda staying consistent with that".

The president made his remarks before departing for the G7 summit in Canada.

Trump indicated that the basketball stars' opinions don't matter - they're not invited anyway.

Game 4 between the Warriors and Cavs is scheduled to tipoff tonight at 9pm ET, airing on ABC. The president congratulated the team on Twitter earlier Friday.

"But we have other teams that are coming", Trump said. We had Clemson - national champion. "And instead we just have these military sing-a-longs at the White House to show how patriotic we are, even though we don't know the words. We had the Pittsburgh Penguins a year ago". He said: "I think we'll have the Caps".

"What else do you expect Trump to do?" said Durant, according to The Washington Post. "Still a good feeling". "If they don't want to be here, I don't want them".

"My attitude [is that] if they want to be here, the greatest place on earth, I'll be here".

President Trump said Friday he won't be inviting the victor of the NBA Finals to the White House. "It's a lot of things that we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he's for". "Let's not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment..." The move prompted a tweet from James, who wrote "U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!"
