Last year after the Warriors won the 2017 NBA championship they declined the traditional visit to the white house, due to its current occupancy. Of course, at that time it did not sit well with the current clown residing in the oval and went on Twitter to say "Going to the white house is considered a great honor for the championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore the invitation is withdrawn! that was followed by a tweet from Lebron with "U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So, therefore, ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" and that mess continued.


Now Warriors All-Star guard Klay Thompson told the Washington Post's, Tim Bontemps,


“The White House is a great honor,” Thompson said, “but there are some other circumstances that we felt uncomfortable going. We’re not going to politicize anything. We’re going to hang out with some kids, and take them to the African American Museum, and hopefully teach them some things we learned along the way, and life lessons, and hopefully give them some great memories.”


" Kerr told ESPN. "I want the players to have a good day and to do something positive and to enjoy what they're doing."


"At the end of the day, it's about us celebrating a championship, so there's no point in getting into the political stuff and all that," forward Draymond Green told ESPN. "It's about something we did great. Why make it about [politics]?"


Their visit will be closed to the media but it's sure to make an impact on those they meet.
