“I agree with Bron,” Curry said. “Pretty sure the way we handled things last year, we’d stay consistent with that.”
Watch Curry’s full comments below:
Last year, the Golden State Warriors were uninvited from the White House. Trump tweeted, “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!” The Warriors later issued a statement saying Trump “made it clear that we are not invited” to the White House. The team celebrated its championship by touring the National Museum of African American History and Culture while on a trip to Washington, D.C.
