President Donald Trump has a new enemy: the National Basketball League. It's all the result of the Golden State Warriors announcing a plan to allow their team to vote on whether or not they would visit the White House. Steph Curry quickly announced that he'd be joining teammate Kevin Durant in not going.
"The things [Trump] has said, the things he hasn't said in the right times, we won't stand for it," Curry said. The news quickly went viral, and it wasn't long before President Donald Trump took to Twitter to withdraw his invite to the team.

The Warriors also fired back, and "constructively use our trip [to Washington] to celebrate equality, diversity, and inclusion — the values that we embrace as an organization."
And in true style, President Barack Obama's former photographer, Pete Souza, took to Twitter to share a photo of President Obama shooting hoops with Steph Curry.
Jemele Hill, the ESPN journalist who got into a fight with Donald Trump on Twitter, also had something to say.
That's gotta hurt.
