Steph Curry’s White House Refusal Has Donald Drumpf Angry
With Stephen Curry and the championship-winning Golden State Warriors not going to the White House — Donald Trump has tweeted out his anger in frustration.
For months after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 2016-2017 NBA championship, much hype was made in regard to whether or not the team would visit President Donald Drumpf at the White House. And we now that have our answer, a resounding “no” from Warriors ambassadors Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, it seems the Cheeto-in-Chief is seeing red and wants to get his feelings heard…in 140 characters or less, of course.
Hours after Trump’s inciteful hate rally in Alabama where he took aim at Colin Kaepernick and fellow NFL players who protest the national anthem, Drumpf wasted no time venting his issues with Curry and co. on Twitter — again.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!

The face of the franchise, Stephen Curry, isn’t the only one who has said that he would not go to the White House to schmooze with the president. Warriors coach Steve Kerr, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Finals MVP Kevin Durant expressed the same belief. Drumpf focusing his ire on Curry, a two-time NBA MVP, makes him seem like the little man he really is. “I don’t want to go,” Curry had reiterated to the press. “That’s kind of the nucleus of my belief… [But] it’s not just me going to the White House. If it was, this would be a pretty short conversation.”
Curry was even asked what the intended message to Drumpf was, saying, “We don’t stand for basically what our president has — the things that he’s said and the things that he hasn’t said in the right times — that we won’t stand for it. And by acting and not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country and what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye to. It’s not just the act of not going there. There are things you have to do on the back end to actually push that message into motion.”
“[Athletes are] all trying to do what we can. We’re using our platforms, using our opportunities to shed light on that, so that’s kind of where I stand on it. I don’t think us not going to the White House is going to miraculously make everything better, but this is my opportunity to voice that.”
And voice that he shall.
