Have you ever been invited to a friend’s birthday party but you weren’t able to go? Once they heard you couldn’t go, they would then say, “you weren’t invited anyway?”
President Donald Trump withdrew his invitation to the Golden State Warriors and guard Steph Curry to visit the White House after winning the 2017 NBA championship. Trump said Curry was “hesitating.
”Curry told reporters Friday he would vote against the Warriors visiting the White House and President Trump.Curry received support from fellow NBA players including four-time MVP Lebron James, who denounced Trump’s taken-back invitation in his most retweeted post ever.
After Trump’s comments about the NFL and NBA in the last 24 hours and North Carolina’s men’s basketball team not visiting the White House (because of a scheduling conflict), it is hard to believe any championship-winning teams will be making the trip to the nation’s capital anytime soon.
“Our league is the most popular league in the world and we have a lot of teams in the swing states. We know that we cannot directly pressure the President into resigning but if we can hold his approval rating hostage and make the people scream for his removal, that’s what we’ll do.
Worst case is that we get him out in November. We have a plan for the rest of this season if we get our way and we have a schedule set to begin on January 21, 2021 if it comes down to it.”
