Sorry, president-elect Donald Trump, but your good friends the Ricketts apparently won’t be bringing the Chicago Cubs for a visit. SAD!
As is custom, the Cubs earned a trip to the White House to meet the president, whomever he or she might be, with their historic World Series victory over the Cleveland Indians in the fall. But with President Barack Obama’s term soon coming to a close and Trump’s about to begin, there was a real question as to which president the Cubs would visit.
Obama, a Chicago White Sox fan and former Illinois senator, sent a tweet in the early hours of Nov. 3 inviting the Cubs to his White House, and it appears that’s where they’ll be Monday.
The Monday visit to the White House also has been confirmed by ESPN’s Jim Bowden, via a team source.
