The University of North Carolina’s men’s basketball team, which won the national championship earlier this year, announced on Saturday that they will not be going to the White House to celebrate their victory this year.
A team spokesman said that the team tried setting up a date with the Trump administration but were unable to find one.
“We couldn’t find a date that worked for both parties,” a spokesman said. “We tried about eight or nine dates and between they couldn’t work out that date, we couldn’t work out that date, so – we would have liked to have gone, but not going.”
The team’s coach, Roy Williams, has been critical of Trump in the past, calling him out on his Twitter usage.
“It used to be much more so than I think it is now,” he said in April. “Now everybody’s has got social media, and we don’t need The New York Times to find out what in the dickens is going on in the country. You know, our president tweets out more bulls–t than anybody I’ve ever seen. We’ve got social media.”
