President Donald Trump has withdrawn an invitation to the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House after Warrior’s guard Stephen Curry told reporters on Friday that he didn’t want to go.
President Donald Trump is pictured here at the Turnberry Golf Club in Turnberry, Scotland in 2015.
When asked why he didn’t want to go, Curry told the SF Gate “that we basically don’t stand for what our president has said, and the things he hasn’t said at the right time.”
Curry commented again on Friday, “You can talk about all the different personalities that have said things and done things - from Kaepernick to what happened with Michael Bennett to all sorts of examples of what has gone on in our country that has led to change,” Curry told reporters, according to Sports Illustrated.
“We’re all trying to do what we can using our platforms, using our opportunities to shed light on that. That’s kind of where I stand on that. I don’t think us going to the White House will miraculously make everything better, but this is my opportunity to voice that.”
