Warriors and Cavs Refuse to Visit White House - Katie Zehnder

Trump, fresh off canceling the National Football League champion Philadelphia Eagles' White House appearance when it became clear he wasn't going to draw much of a crowd, says this year's NBA Finals victor won't have the chance to turn down his invitation to Washington D.C. Because they won't be getting one.

As he prepared to leave for the G7 summit in Canada Friday morning, reporters asked the president his thoughts on James' and Curry's remarks, as well as the ongoing controversy surrounding championship teams visiting the White House. "We're not going to invite either team". I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway.

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

He said that the Chinese President was the only state leader "who celebrated his birthday with him", sharing vodka and sausage. President Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.

Looks like yet another sports team won't be celebrating a championship win with a visit to the White House. It seemed to be a moot point, as LeBron James said Tuesday that neither his Cavaliers nor the Warriors would accept a visit. "When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them. I'm here. If they don't want to be here, I don't want them", Trump said. So Trump, to spare himself the snub, disinvited the team because, he said, they disagree with him about standing for the national anthem - even though all members of the Eagles stood for the anthem all season long.

The Minnesota Lynx, the reigning WNBA champions, did not receive an invitation to the White House and instead spent a day performing community service in Washington this week. "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!" So, it's not surprising hearing the news today with the Eagles.

Stephen Curry and LeBron James spoke their minds past year. "It's a lot of things that we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he's for".

Putnam: No mores lapse in background checks
An inspector general's report sent to Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in 2017 highlighted the problem. The Division of Licensing is housed under the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service.

"I agree with 'bron", Curry said.

In 2017, the Warriors won the NBA Championship and drew Trump's fury after Curry and other Warriors players said that they would not make the trip to the White House. If he did he wouldn't pal around with white nationalists, call them "some very fine people" after causing death and destruction in Charlottesville; lash out at undocumented immigrants by branding them "animals;" see women as more than body parts he could grab, "because when you're rich women will let you do whatever you want to them".
