Warriors reportedly will skip visit to Trump's White House

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State Warriors fans are breakdancing in downtown Oakland and honking their horns in San Francisco to celebrate their team's latest National Basketball Association title.

The Warriors have not made an official announcement, but head coach Steve Kerr and several players have been openly critical of Trump and his policies.

Back in 2015, the Warriors did pay a visit to a Barack Obama-governed White House after capturing the organization's first title in 40 years.

It's unclear whether the Warriors would decide to skip an invitation to the White House, but there are signs to suggest they may.

Kerr has also called Trump's failed travel ban a "horrible idea" and cracked jokes about the administrations perchance for "alternate facts".

The headlines were everywhere, with this "report" quoting this other "report" about the team's decision.

In a text, Raymond Ridder wrote, "We have not yet been invited to the White House".

There is speculation on Twitter that the team will decline the traditional honor bestowed to championship teams of meeting the president, particularly in light of harsh criticism leveled at Trump by its key members. While Brady cited family reasons for missing the celebration, others like Devin McCourtey, Martellus Bennett and Chris Long cited Trump as their reason for not attending. Forward David West expressed his unhappiness after the election of Trump, saying it was "unsettling".

"I can't believe we're getting this question already", Lacob said.

"We respect the office of the presidency of the United States and what it stands for", Morehouse said, according to the newspaper.

"I really feel that my views would keep me from going and visiting", Livingston told 95.7 The Game.

"I agree with that description, if you remove the 'et, '" Curry said, in response to Plank calling President Trump an "asset". "We're going to have fun, so I'm excited". "You know, our president tweets out more bull - than anybody I've ever seen", Williams said.
