President Trump withdraws Warriors' White House invitation

Donald Trump's feud with professional athletes escalated rapidly on Saturday, with the most high-profile player in the National Basketball Association taking to Twitter to lambast the president.

The NBA superstar and actor James tweeted Trump was a "bum" and his logic made no sense.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, one of those who have been critical of Trump's policies, has said the team has yet to receive an official invite from the White House after their NBA Finals win against the Cavaliers, but players would decide together whether or not to accept one.

Did LeBron James just try to posterize President Trump?

Curry's wife, Ayesha, also mocked Trump - and urged her Twitter followers to donate to quake relief efforts for Mexico (something the president failed to mention during his Saturday morning Twitter rant). "That's my nucleus of my belief". If it was, this would be a short conversation.

The exchange came after Golden State's Steph Curry said he would not be going to the White House, explaining many of his teammates felt the same way.

Earlier in the year, New England Patriot's Tom Brady skipped the celebratory White House visit, citing 'personal family matters,' but Trump did not comment on Brady's decision.

"We don't stand for basically what our president has said - and hasn't said", Curry, a two-time NBA MVP, told reporters.

Trump was slammed for his Curry remarks on Twitter, including by filmmaker Ava DuVernay. He's fired. He's fired!' " Trump told the crowd.

Donnie announced via Twitter that the invitation is now withdrawn because the GSW's point guard is "hesitating". There are things you have to do on the back end to actually push that message into motion. We're using our platforms, using our opportunities to shed light on that, so that's kind of where I stand on it.

Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards also got involved and tweeted, "On Sunday, I hope every [NFL] player takes a knee in solidarity [with Kaepernick] against the white supremacist who squats in our White House". "He's going to say, 'That guy that disrespects our flag, he's fired.' And that owner, they don't know it [but] they'll be the most popular person in this country".
