Golden State Warriors Announce They Won’t Visit White House — Here’s What They’ll Do Instead

Instead of meeting officials at the White House, the Golden State Warriors will be spending their Tuesday with children from the D.C. area.

President Donald Trump disinvited the NBA team after players Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant stated they were uninterested and wanted to pass on the trip. This prompted the president to rescind their invitation over Twitter:

Many championship teams are invited to the White House, and it is considered a tradition. However, Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson believes that this break from tradition is an opportunity to influence the younger generation.

“The White House is a great honor, but there’s extenuating circumstances that we felt that we’re not comfortable doing,” Thompson said, according to a Fox News article.

“We’re not going to politicize anything, we’re just going to hang out with some kids, take them to an African-American museum and hopefully teach them things we learned along the way and life lessons, and we’ll still be getting some great memories.”

They will be meeting with the children on Tuesday ahead of their scheduled game against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
