Trump not inviting NBA champions to White House

Trump Not Inviting NBA Champions to White House

But hey, at least those other teams are still going.

"I mean, I'm not surprised", he said during a press conference, according to the Chicago Tribune. "Pretty sure the way we handled things a year ago, kinda staying consistent with that". At the time, James took to social media to support Curry. In response, Trump disinvited the team.

Last year, LeBron called Trump a "bum" on Twitter when Trump called out Steph Curry for not wanting to go to the White House then. After all, they didn't visit Trump last season either. "We're not going to invite either team", the president said, hours before Friday's game.

"Any team that wins the championship is going to be in a decision-making situation where you have to do what is in the best interest of your team", he said. "When you read about their good deeds in their communities, Malcolm Jenkins addressing lawmakers, really trying to get to the roof of some of the issues we have", Kerr continued. We had Clemson, national champion.

Patriotism, Samuel Johnson told us long ago, is the last refuge of a scoundrel. "We had the Pittsburgh Penguins previous year".

"I think we'll have the Caps", Trump said.

France, Germany slam Trump's G7 statement U-turn
Leaders have struggled to find ways of getting through to Trump and persuading him to budge from his pre-established positions. The annual G-7 summit appeared to have weathered tensions over President Donald Trump's threats of a trade war.

Meanwhile, the most recent sports champions to be crowned are the Washington Capitals, who wrapped up the Stanley Cup championship this week.

"My attitude [is], if they want to be here, the greatest place on earth, I'll be here", Trump added. "I would say though ultimately it saddens me because historically we've been able to use the National Basketball Association and all of sports to bring people together".

Championship players have in recent years snubbed both Trump and President Barack Obama by declining White House invitations.

Now, with the winners of the 2018 NBA Playoffs still up in the air, Trump is taking precaution by pre-disinviting whoever ends up being the championship team.

"I agree with 'Bron", said Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

Team-mate Kevin Durant also concurred. But the determination comes as top White House officials continue to insist publicly that Mr. Trump's trade approach will be "massively good for the USA economy".
