Trump Petulantly Withdraws White House Invite From NBA Star Who Already Said He Doesn’t Want To Go

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Saturday said the “invitation is withdrawn” for Stephen Curry to visit the White House because the NBA All-Star “is hesitating.” All-Star Warriors guard Stephen Curry said this week he didn’t want the team to visit the White House to celebrate their NBA championship title.

“I don’t want to go,” Curry told reporters on Friday. He said in June he “probably” wouldn’t go to the White House, and this week said he didn’t think the team should go either. Managers said they will discuss the decision as a team in an open forum.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

Friday’s media day was the first time the team had gathered since their NBA championship parade. Though the possible White House visit has been a talking point throughout this very short offseason, there has never been an official discussion about the topic.

The leader of the team, Stephen Curry, made it clear where he stands. He already said earlier in the summer he didn’t want to make the visit. “My views haven’t changed,” he said. “I don’t know if they can be changed. “I don’t want to go. That’s the nucleus of my belief. If it was just me, it would be a pretty short conversation.”
