BellaNaija - Donald Trump bans NBA winners Golden State Warriors from White House | See all the Reactions

US President Donald Trump is in the news again for some fresh controversy following his banning of NBA winners Golden State Warriors (GSW) from visiting the White House as part of their victory celebrations.

He made this declaration after GSW star player Steph Curry reportedly said he does not wish to attend. According to BBC, Steph had stated categorically that “I don’t want to go“, adding that not going would show that the players “don’t stand for… the things that he’s said and the things that he hasn’t said in the right times“. Steph added:

I don’t think us not going to the White House is going to miraculously make everything better, but this is my opportunity to voice that.

Trump then responded via his Twitter account that he invitation had been withdrawn. This drew other NBA players like LeBron James & Kobe Bryant to react, James particularly describing Trump as “U Bum” and stating that it used to be a pride to visit the White House before he came along.

    Trump is disrespectful but i think this whole “Trump is shit” has been taken a step too far. He’s their president and there are more diplomatic ways to turn down an invitation. Americans..smh! This is bullying.

    …this a part of real America, showcasing itself through Trump.

    Fancy a citizen addressing its President as a bum. Another President called him a ‘Dotard’.

    Examine both closely, you’ll see truth in them. The real America telling us who they really are.

      @ Awoyo, so what exactly is that telling you? That unlike many African Countries, Americans actually enjoy the freedom of speech we are otherwise denied? That a president can be called a bum when he acts like one, instead of giving hypocritical praise in the face of bad behavior or in many cases in Africa bad governance. I personally will never insult the Trump although his child like behavior and tantrums does call for it at times but I do that in obedience to my faith I.e to respect those in authority, but to respect those not equate living a lie or not calling a spade a spade. Trump is like a kid, if he hears something that does not cater to his ego, he throws a tantrum and his all for tit for tat, how does that make for good leadership? Criticism comes with leadership obviously he somehow either missed that memo or chooses to ignore it. So like I said while I don’t full understand what you mean by it shows what Americans truly are. I hope it shows you that Americans are honest about how they feel about those in leadership and at least exercise their rights with the freedom of speech.
