Steph Curry Says He’ll Vote Against Warriors Visiting Donald Trump at White House (VIDEO)
The Warriors have yet to receive a formal invite from the White House for a meet-and-greet with the president after winning the NBA championship in June. If the invite does come, don’t expect many players on the current squad to show their faces.
Several players, including two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry, have publicly stated they want nothing to do with a trip to the White House while Donald Trump is in office. Curry reiterated that point once again during Media Day on Friday.
“I don’t want to go,” he reiterated at his Media Day press conference. “My beliefs stay the same.”
He went on to say how skipping that visit would send a clear-cut message:
“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 at the right times. We won’t stand for it. By acting and not going hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country, what is accepted, and what we turn a blind eye to. It’s not just the act of not going, there are things you have to do at the back end to push that message into motion.
“You can talk about all the personalities who have said things and done things – (Colin) Kaepernick to what happened to Martellus Bennett to all sorts of other examples of what has gone on in our country that we need to kind of change. We’re all trying to do what we can using our platforms and opportunities to shed light on that. …I don’t think us not going to the White House will miraculously make everything better, but this is my opportunity to voice that.”

Curry basically just expanded on his comments from June when he stated he ‘probably’ wouldn’t go to the White House if they were invited.
