After NBA’s Stephen Curry Rejects Trump's Whitehouse Invitation, the Disgruntled President 'Withdraws' It

As part of his continuing war on black athletes, President Donald Trump withdrew his invitation to Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry to visit the White House via Twitter.


Less than 24 hours after Trump called former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “son of a b*tch,” Trump went after the popular Curry who had indicated that he might not attend a White House ceremony celebrating the NBA champion Warriors.

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 Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!”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

Friday night Curry told reporters that he is not a fan of the idea of NBA team visiting the White House, saying, “I don’t want to go.”
