Golden State Warriors reportedly voted to skip the White House visit with President Donald Trump. The newly crowned NBA champions will be choosing to “make a political statement” by refusing an invitation to see President Donald Trump.
The Oakland-based basketball team, led by head coach Steve Kerr said that he would not go to the White House back on November 9th, according to Comcast SportsNet. CNBC Josh Brown tweeted reports that the team had decided to boycott Trump.
Here is their full statement:
“The Golden State Warriors say no decision has been made regarding a potential White House visit to celebrate their NBA title.”
“The Warriors issued a statement Tuesday saying that “today is all about celebrating our championship” and that they have not received an invitation to the White House. The statement added the organization would make those decisions when and if necessary.”
“The team issued the statement following multiple reports that the Warriors had voted unanimously against making a White House trip.”
Nancy Pelosi says she will host them.
