As you already know, NBA stars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant said they wouldn’t visit the White House, which made the President Trump to withdraw the invitation for the Golden State Warriors.
But instead of withdrawing the invitation, Trump should have publicly invited the NBA champs to the White House in order to put the pressure back on the players and made him look good if they still rejected.
Moot point now.
Yesterday, the Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins made an announcement that he will visit 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and have a meeting with the president.
Trump was delighted.

From Fox News Insider:
In response, the Pittsburgh Penguins, who won the National Hockey League’s championship this past winter, said they will indeed go ahead with the customary White House visit.
On Saturday, Trump disinvited the NBA-champion Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry, which resulted in the entire team backing out of their White House visit.
The Penguins said that they as a team will “respect the institution of the office of the president and the long tradition of championship teams visiting the White House.”
NCAA Men’s Basketball champions North Carolina have also announced that they wouldn’t visit the White House. Though, their issue led to scheduling conflict.
Apparently, there are going to be more stories of teams rejecting White House invites before Trump’s first team is out.
