Chicago Cubs to Visit White House Quickly to See Obama Before Trump Gets Into Office
Obama is a self-described die-hard Chicago White Sox fan, but he did take the initiative to invite manager Joe Maddon and the Chicago Cubs to the White House before he turns the key over to Donald Trump.
He did so during a congratulatory phone call in November, the day after the team’s Game 7 World Series win over the Indians. He followed up with a tweet asking, “Want to come to the White House before I leave?”

According to NBC 5 Chicago’s Mary Ann Ahern, the Cubs will visit President Barack Obama in the White House before he leaves office on January 20th, when Trump is set to take over.
