The tweet comes after several players including Stephen Curry said they wouldn’t be going to DC. The team was set to meet soon to discuss if they would go or not but now that doesn’t seem necessary.
According to KSLA even if the team doesn’t meet with the President there’s still a chance they will make a trip to DC the House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California has said she would like to bring the team to the Capitol.
