He then expressed the "irony" about the Eagles being uninvited to the White House.

The Warriors won last year's title but Trump revoked their invitation after one of their star players, Stephen Curry, said he would vote against visiting Trump.

"I agree with 'Bron", Curry said at a separate news conference. "We're not going to invite either team", Mr. Trump told reporters on Friday.

"My attitude [is that] if they want to be here, the greatest place on earth, I'll be here".

Trump earlier praised the Capitals in a post on Twitter, citing Alex Ovechkin, the team's Russian-born star, who a year ago started what he called a "social movement" called PutinTeam to support Russian President Vladimir Putin.

After the majority of Philadelphia Eagles refused to visit The White House, Donald Trump disinvited the entire team.

Investors are also concerned about the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump has threatened to terminate. The official described Merkel's suggestion as a "shared assessment and dialogue" mechanism, but gave no further details.

"I'm not surprised. It's typical of him", James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump's decision to cancel. I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going".

National Basketball Association superstars Stephen Curry and LeBron James spoke their minds a year ago - and nothing's changed. "Winning a championship is way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in it".

But Trump said he'd be happy to host the Washington Capitals, who just won the Stanley Cup.

Speaking to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith prior to Game 4 of the NBA Finals, Silver said "it's a bit of resignation that this is where we find ourselves".

Curry at the time said he wanted his team to forego the White House visit as a protest against Trump and to "inspire" change.

The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away. "When you read about their good deeds in their communities, Malcolm Jenkins addressing lawmakers, really trying to get to the roof of some of the issues we have", Kerr continued. When told of LeBron's comments, Curry said that he agreed players from either team won't want an invite.
