This comes after both Stephen Curry and LeBron James said no matter who wins the championship, neither team will be going to the White House.

"(The Eagles) disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country."

This was a response to LeBron James saying that neither the Warriors or Cavaliers would be going to the White House, no matter what team won.

The tradition of championship teams visiting the White House has reached an abrupt stop as players and personnel voice their concerns about Donald Trump.

"When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them".

Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments a year ago and Trump's subsequent revoking of the Warriors' invitation.

"I'm not surprised. It's typical of him, " James, the Cleveland star, said of Trump's decision to cancel.

This seems to be a never-ending battle, and won't be resolved until Trump is out of office.

Trump has lashed out at NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem before games.

Trump, meanwhile, said he was unfazed by snubs from the champion teams of the two most popular sports in the United States, citing other teams who had attended. If you look, we had Alabama - national champion. But we already knew the Warriors and the Cavaliers weren't going to go.

"Let's not let someone uninviting you from their house take away from their championship", James said later, Sports Illustrated reported. Golden State's Kevin Durant said.

That said, dictatorships such as Saudi Arabia have succeeded in flattering Trump and getting something in return - largely because they can offer him material rewards in addition to kind words. We get it at this point.
