President Donald Trump‘s favorite basketball team, the Golden State Warriors, aren’t invited to the White House any longer but Washington, D.C. is still rolling out the red carpet for the NBA champions. Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser formally invited the team to the city via a statement published online when the team takes on the Washington Wizards next year.
Local outlet WTOP reports:
They may not be welcome at the White House but the Golden State Warriors are still invited to visit the nation’s capital.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser extended an invitation to the National Basketball Association champions Saturday to visit the city, tweeting that the city is happy to show the team ways to celebrate “equality, diversity and inclusion — what we call DC values.”
President Donald Trump rescinded the White House invitation in a series of tweets, saying it was Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry’s hesitation to visit that led the president to withdraw the invitation.
