Trump: No White House Invitation For Any NBA Championship Team!

In his continuing efforts to divide America along racial lines Donald Trump told reporters this weekend that no matter who won the NBA champions there would be no invite for either the Cleveland Cavaliers or Golden State Warriors to the White House...

"I didn't invite LeBron James, and I didn't invite Steph Curry. We're not going to invite either team,"

Trump did however declare that teams with a higher ratio of white players are always welcome at his White House...

"But we have other teams that are coming. If you look, we had Alabama — national champion. We had Clemson, national champion. We had the New England Patriots. We had the Pittsburgh Penguins last year,"

Trump then went on to say that he believes the Stanley Cup wining Washington Capitals will visit the White House after congratulating the team on their win earlier Friday...

"I think we'll have the Caps. We'll see. You know, my attitude is if they want to be here, the greatest place on Earth, I'm here. If they don't want to be here, I don't want them,"

Watch those statements here...

Last year, Trump did the exact same thing to the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors when he "disinvited" them from visiting the White House after their star player, Steph Curry said he wasn't interested in attending the ceremony.

Trump's divisive move comes just days after he abruptly uninvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from visiting the White House after it was announced that fewer that 5 people from the team planned to attend the ceremony.

In a lesser reported story The Minnesota Lynx, the reigning WNBA champions, did not receive any invitation whatsoever to Trump's White House and chose instead to spend the day performing community service.
