The Golden State Warriors Just Announced They Won’t Visit White House

The Golden State Warriors have decided to stand up to Donald Trump’s divisive and childish tweet Saturday by announcing that they will not be making a visit to the White House, instead, the team will be spending their time in Washington, D.C. visit celebrating “equality, diversity, and inclusion.”

“While we intended to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential visit to the White House, we accept President Trump has made it clear that we are not invited,” the team said in a statement.

“We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them. We’re disappointed that we did not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have an open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise,” the statement read.

The team said they would use their February trip to the nation’s capital to “celebrate equality, diversity, and inclusion,” which the Warriors say are values they “embrace as an organization.”

The statement comes hours after Trump withdrew player Stephen Curry’s invitation from the White House in a tweet.

Curry told reporters on Friday that he did not want to visit the White House.

“By not going, hopefully, it will inspire some change for what we tolerate in this country and what we stand for, what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye toward,” Curry said.

Trump’s feud with the NBA comes directly after he launched an attack on NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick during his Friday night rally for kneeling during the National Anthem.

Earlier Today, NBA star LeBron James hit back at Trump, saying that “going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”
