We're not inviting the National Basketball Association champions - Trump responds to LeBron, Curry

One attendee said all workers in the White House complex were invited to attend the event.

The Golden State Warriors avoided Donald Trump's White House when they won last year's National Basketball Association championship, and certainly won't be heading there after taking down the Cleveland Cavaliers again, now that the President of the United States has made it clear he won't invite the Larry O'Brien Trophy winners to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The 2018 Super Bowl Champions, the Philadelphia Eagles, like the Warriors, were also not invited to the White House.

"The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow", the president's statement said. Afterward, Trump wasn't happy with the Warriors and went full petty on a Twitter rant that led to the Warriors being no longer invited to the White House.

Much of the Trump administration repeatedly argued that the tariffs will encourage other countries to lower their trade barriers on U.S. goods, thereby boosting the economy.

Also on Friday, Trump said he would look at pardon applications suggested by National Football League players who protested during the anthem.

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.

Instead, members of the Golden State roster spent their first road trip in the nation's capital touring an African-American history museum with a group of school children. "I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants to go anyway", said James.

In September, Trump revoked an invitation to the Warriors following their victory previous year over the Cavaliers after Curry had said he would vote against a planned visit to meet Trump at the White House.

James added that Trump's decision should not take away from the Eagles' success.

Stephen Curry, who's LeBron's opposition on the court, is on board with him on the anti-Trump train. "It's a lot of people that believe that he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people".

"I think it's laughable at this point", he said. "They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country". "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going".

When told about James' comment, Curry agreed with his opponent's sentiment.
