Trump attacks Stephen Curry, disinvites the Golden State Warriors from the White House in early morning tweet

President Donald Trump attacked Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors on Twitter Saturday morning over reports that they were considering skipping their White House visit.

The NBA champion Warriors were reportedly planning to meet as a team and decide whether to go to the White House, per tradition, due to their dislike of Trump.

"Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team," Trump tweeted. "Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!"

Several Warriors players including Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry previously expressed misgivings about the visit.

Curry told reporters Friday that he does not want to go to the White House as a message to Trump.

"That we don’t stand for basically what our President has – the things that he’s said and the things that he hasn’t said in the right times, that we won’t stand for it," Curry said. "And by acting and not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country and what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye to. It’s not just the act of not going there."

The Fox News morning show Fox & Friends, which Trump is known to watch voraciously, aired a segment on Curry's comments just a few minutes before the tweet.

White House visits are usually initiated by the president in a call to the coach or owner. The Trump administration had not contacted the Warriors about the trip according to ESPN.

Both the Chicago Cubs and New England Patriots visited the White House since Trump took office. Both teams owners have close ties to Trump.
