  • U.S. President Donald Trump boards Air Force One to depart for travel to Canada from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland U.S

Earlier this week, Trump canceled the Philadelphia Eagles' visit to the White House, where they were supposed to be honored for their Super Bowl win from February. President Trump has officially announced that this year's National Basketball Association champion will not be welcome at the White House.

"When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them".

LeBron James said neither the Cavaliers nor Warriors would visit President Donald Trump's White House if they won the championship.

"I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants to go anyway", James said. "It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going".

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, an outspoken Trump critic, said Trump had "made it pretty clear he's going to try to divide us ... for political gain".

So I want to give him full credit when his team beats the Cleveland Cavaliers for another league championship. We'll see." However, at least one Capitals player has said he'll be skipping: "Devante Smith-Pelly said he'll skip the visit because of his disagreements with Trump, according to The Hill.

Homes in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland are on smaller lots and are closer together than in other parts of the Puna district. The large laze plume was blowing inland along the coastline and the agency warned residents to avoid the area.

Trump, meanwhile, said he was unfazed by snubs from the champion teams of the two most popular sports in the United States, citing other teams who had attended. No Eagles took part in last season's kneeling demonstrations, which began as a way for black players to protest police treatment of minorities. "And instead we just have these military sing-a-longs at the White House to show how patriotic we are, even though we don't know the words".

"Any team that wins the championship is going to be in a decision-making situation where you have to do what is in the best interest of your team", he said. A large group of Eagles players had decided not to attend. His teammate, Kevin Durant, also spoke about the Eagles' move before as well.

"I just remember I had inside position for the rebound on John Stockton, Kerr said following shootaround Thursday". "We get it at this point, but it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in..."
