Historically, the NBA Champions usually visit the White House to meet the active President of the United States. Well the Golden State Warriors have chosen not to visit Donald Trump as the organization posted a press release for ignoring him.

The official Twitter account for the Golden State Warriors posted an announcement for the reasons why the 2017 NBA Champions are not going to visit President Trump. The team do not share the same values and ideologies as Mr.

Trump. You can read the full statement down below.

While we intended to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential White House visit, we accept that President Trump has it made it clear that we are not invited. We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them. We're disappointed that we had not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise. In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we'll constructively use our trip to the nation's capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion - the values that we embrace as an organization.

Many NBA players have been vocal towards Donald Trump ever since he became the POTUS. Players such as Stephen Curry and LeBron James have never been fans of his. As a result of this, it seems like no NBA champion team will visit Trump as long as he is still President.
