Trump invites National Hockey League champ Capitals to White House but not NBA winners

This news comes after LeBron James said that neither the Cavs nor Warriors would attend a trip to the White House after Trump canceled the Eagles' visit.

Just this week, the president abruptly uninvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from visiting the White House, in part because they planned to bring a "smaller delegation" rather than their full team.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Trump had "made it pretty clear he's going to try to divide us. for political gain".

"I think what you're seeing is, I think the athletes are showing patriotism through their community service", he said, alluding to the good deeds athletes do when they're away from the field.

"I'll have a world title by the end of the year, that's a promise", declared Fury. "It meant miracles (to be back in the ring)".

Curry is referencing last year's controversy when the Warriors declined an invitation the White House.

After NBA stars LeBron James and Steph Curry criticized President Donald Trump over his cancellation of a Philadelphia Eagles White House visit, the President told reporters Friday whoever wins the NBA Championship will not be invited to Washington.

"That's typical of him", James said of the Eagles cancellation. I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway.

Trump also said he won't invite potential National Basketball Association champs the San Francisco Warriors or Cleveland Cavaliers to the White House - days after they said they wouldn't show up anyway. "And if I find, and my committee finds, that they're unfairly treated, then we will pardon them or at least let them out".

Israel has been pledging for months to prevent its main enemy Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria, where Tehran is backing Assad's government.

Championship players have in recent years snubbed both Trump and President Barack Obama by declining White House invitations. Trump has often blasted the NFL players who have kneeled for the national anthem, a protest that started in 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did so to raise awareness of racism - more specifically, the killing of black men by police.

Trump said Friday that the Washington Capitals, who clinched the Stanley Cup on Thursday night, are likely to be invited.

"Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team".

"I agree with Bron", Curry said.
