Steph Curry, guard for the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, said recently that he didn’t want to go to the White House and meet President Trump. This morning, Trump put a quick end to any remaining speculation:
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!

That escalated quickly!
Reaction to Trump’s tweet? Mixed:
Those saying "I wish he wouldn't engage in this silly stuff." miss the entire point. It's returning fire in a culture war we've been losing. https://t.co/f0osFT44Z2

I doubt that Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, etc. are going to lose any sleep over your disinvitation… https://t.co/S4YrIEnXuh
