Donald Trump to Stephen Curry: Consider Your White House Invitation 'Withdrawn'

Instagram

At the Golden State Warriors' media day on Friday, Curry faced questions about the team's possible visit to the White House to celebrate its National Basketball Association title.

The Warriors wouldn't be the first team to skip a trip to the White House through a variety of occupants.

Curry, the two-time NBA MVP, told a press conference Friday that he thinks the Warriors can "inspire some change" by not going to the White House.

LeBron James noted Trump's contradiction in a flawless tweet.

At a political rally Friday, Trump called on NFL owners to release players who demonstrated during the national anthem in the manner of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt to draw attention to police violence against African-Americans. It's hard to say because I don't know exactly what we're going to do.

Curry's wife, Ayesha responded to Trump saying: "Okay..."

Some of Curry's teammates, including fellow All-Star Kevin Durant, have also expressed their disinterest in visiting the White House and meeting Trump.

"The only thing you could do better, is if you see it, even if it's just one player, leave the stadium". On Saturday morning, Trump lashed out on Twitter, while officially withdrawing his invite for the team to attend.

On Saturday, Trump echoed his stance.

Trump wrote. But what the president failed to mention - and what James and numerous others were quick to point out - is that Curry said he didn't want to go to the White House to see Trump anyway.

It was reported in June that Warriors players had unanimously voted against accepting a White House invite after their NBA Finals win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"I've talked to a couple of them about it", Kerr told ESPN. I want them to talk about racism every day.

"And whether you like that person that's running the country or not, out of respect to the office itself you go. That's just me personally, but if I know my guys well enough, they'll all agree with me".

Previously, NCAA football champion Clemson, the NFL champ New England Patriots and MLB World Series champion Chicago Cubs all visited Trump.
