Earlier this week President Trump drew fire after he canceled the Philadelphia Eagles' trip to Washington, D.C to celebrate the team's Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots. Only a small delegation of the franchise was reportedly set to make the trip to the White House.
Will an NBA team visit the White House? Apparently not.
According to a report from ESPN, Trump spoke to reporters and revealed neither the Golden State Warriors or Cleveland Cavaliers will be invited to the White House.
From the report:
President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday morning that "we're not going to invite either team," referring to the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, for a visit to the White House.
This news comes after LeBron James said that neither the Cavs nor Warriors would attend a trip to the White House after Trump canceled the Eagles' visit.
He also said that winning a championship is much bigger than getting invited to the White House, "especially with him in it."
This will be the second year in a row that the NBA champion did not attend a trip to the White House. The Warriors' visit was cancelled earlier this year.
The franchise instead did a charity event in Washington, D.C.
