It has been a rough couple of days recently for championship teams and the White House. The Philadephia Eagles had their invitation revoked by President Donald Trump after most of the team chose not to attend.

Later, NBA Finals stars LeBron James and Steph Curry both stated that they would not be interested in visiting the White House if their team won.

Trump again responded with a declined invitation to the NBA champion. "I didn't invite Lebron James and I didn't invite Steph Curry. We're not going to invite either team, but we have other teams that are coming," Trump said.

Last week, the Washington Capitals won their first Stanley Cup. Not long afterward, Capitals players were seen celebrating their victory with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

As to whether or not the Capitals would get an invitation from the White House, Trump was optimistic. “I think we’ll have the Caps, we’ll see,” he said. “My attitude, if they want to be here, it’s the greatest place on earth, I’m here. If they don't want to be here, I don’t want them.”

So far, there has been no indication that the Capitals will decline their invitation to the White House.
