President Trump: Warriors, Cavs Not Invited To White House


Earlier this week, LeBron James and Stephen Curry told reporters that "no one wants an invite" to the White House.

Trump issued his invitation and snub amid a divisive controversy that resulted in the Philadelphia Eagles, winners of the National Football League's Super Bowl this year, not making the trip to see the president that championship teams traditionally make. "If they don't want to be here, I don't want them", Trump said.

Stephen Curry, who's LeBron's opposition on the court, is on board with him on the anti-Trump train. So Trump, to spare himself the snub, disinvited the team because, he said, they disagree with him about standing for the national anthem - even though all members of the Eagles stood for the anthem all season long. I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway.

The Warriors clinched back-to-back championships Friday night by defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85, completing a four-game sweep in the NBA Finals. "Males or females have the right to do what they want to do", he continued. Reportedly only a handful of players planned to go.

What exactly did LeBron James say about Trump? "Pretty sure the way we handled things past year, kinda staying consistent with that", he said, according to Deadline. "There is a lot of things we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he is for". So, it's not surprising hearing the news today with the Eagles.

Crawford dominates Horn to win WBO welterweight title
I just had to get in the ring and prove it. "He [Horn] was supposed to be a big welterweight and you saw how I dealt with him". Jeff Horn has failed to make for his mandatory WBO welterweight championship defence against Terence Crawford.


According to The New York Times, an internal report prepared by the White House Council of Economic Advisers showed that the tariffs would be detrimental to United States economic growth.

"I think it's laughable at this point", he said.

Last Tuesday James and Curry were warring playing in the NBA Finals but took time to jointly agree that they weren't interested in a White House invite. When the New England Patriots went a year ago, half the team chose not to attend.

"It's not surprising", Curry added.

CEA Chair Kevin Hassett, whose office is responsible for the internal analysis, avoided answering numerous questions about economic effects of Trump's tariffs during a White House press briefing on Tuesday. There I said it.
