LeBron James, the NBA star and champion, responded to President Donald Trump’s comments on the Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry
Trump tweeted Saturday morning that he had “withdrawn” his invitation to the Warriors to visit the White House for a celebration of their championship win.
“Going to the White House is considered a great honour for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!” Trump tweeted
While it was unclear whether or not Trump actually extended an invitation to the Warriors, Curry told ESPN on Friday that he did not want to attend the ceremony if it happened. James pointed to those comments in his response to the president.
“U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite,” James tweeted. “Going to White House was a great honour until you showed up!”
James, whose Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Warriors in the NBA Finals, was a vocal supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and visited the White House during President Barack Obama’s tenure.
Curry himself has not responded to the president’s comments.
