Steph Curry Says He Won't Attend White House Visit So Petty Trump Withdraws Team Invite

45 called the chance to meet him a "great honor."

Published September 23, 2017

Donald Trump’s already been slighted by the New England Patriots after they won the Super Bowl, so he wanted to make it as if he wasn’t getting the cold shoulder from another sport’s champion.

  1. Stephen Curry, whose team already boycotted a visit to the White House, decided he too didn’t want to go. The 45th President however, took that as he was still making a decision and rescinded his invitation even though the Warriors’ point guard already declared he wasn’t making a visit.

  2. “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team,” Trump tweeted. “Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!”

    Surprisingly, LeBron James came to the aid of his arch rival and pointed out the obvious. He also threw a little shade at him as well.

  3. “U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite,” the Cavs forward tweeted. “Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”

    Ouch!

    In full, Curry said at Friday’s (September 22) media day that going to the White House during a Trump presidency isn’t in line with his beliefs.

    “I don’t want to go. That’s kind of the nucleus of my belief,” he said. “It’s not just me going to the White House. If it was, this would be a pretty short conversation. Like I said, it’s the organization, it’s the team. It’s hard to say because I don’t know exactly what we’re going to do. If we do go, don’t go or whatever, my beliefs stay the same.”

    Other people had their support for LeBron’s message. See reaction to what went down below.
