Athletes Respond To Trump Rescinding Steph Curry’s White House Invitation

Don’t expect Stephen Curry to make his way to 300 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. any time soon.

Following the Golden State Warriors’ 2017 NBA Finals victory back in June, Curry made it clear that he wasn’t exactly itching to go visit President Donald Trump at the White House. Trump evidently grew frustrated with Curry’s hesitancy, and rescinded the star guard’s invitation via Twitter on Saturday morning.

LeBron James, who Curry defeated in this year’s Finals, was one of the quickest athletes to show support for the Warriors guard following Trump’s tweet. While James got the most social media attention for his response, he certainly wasn’t the only athlete to stand behind Curry.

Check out some other tweets from around the sports world:

And in case you were wondering if the Warriors still would visit the White House following Curry being disinvited, coach Steve Kerr’s clever response should give you a pretty good idea of what his team’s plans are.
