  • Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Ohio. Le Bron James and the Cavaliers have spent this strange season in one predicament after the next. And while they've

Last year, the Warriors took their time to make an official team decision on whether they'd visit the White House after winning the National Basketball Association title. Somebody says they don't want to go to the White House, he disinvites him so the photo op won't look bad.

"I didn't invite them", Trump said.

James' comment came in response to President Trump's decision to disinvite the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, which POTUS said was because the players "disagree with their president because he insists that they proudly stand for the national anthem".

President Donald Trump told reporters Friday morning that he will not invite the Cleveland Cavaliers or Golden State Warriors to visit the White House following the conclusion of this year's NBA Finals. I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going", James said.

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

Yes, it's understood that you didn't invite them.

James didn't mince words on Tuesday when he also criticized Trump for not inviting the WNBA team.

Trump and Kim meet after months of threats and insults
Goldgeier expressed concern about the plan for Trump and Kim to meet alone, with only interpreters in the room. It is also unclear whether USA officials will raise human rights issues in meetings with the North Koreans.

Trump's announcement echoes his sentiment from September, when he disinvited the 2017 champion Warriors and called out Stephen Curry in a tweet.

Pardons have been top of mind for Trump of late, from clearing boxer Jack Johnson to Kim Kardashian-backed Alice Maria Johnson.

Essentially, the team just ignored Trump. Earlier this week, the White House canceled a ceremony with the defending National Football League champions Philadelphia Eagles.

Professional and college sports teams have long celebrated championships with a ceremonial visit to the White House, but the tradition has become increasingly controversial under Trump.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, an outspoken Trump critic, said Trump had "made it pretty clear he's going to try to divide us. for political gain".

"Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team".

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