Trump met with backlash after attacking athletes

After Trump uninvited Under Armour endorser Stephen Curry to the White House and lashed out at some National Football League players, the sportswear brand tweeted Saturday that it "stands by our Athletes for free speech, expression and a unified America".

Trump's criticism of Curry came less than a day after a different complaint about a different league.

Trump is facing a wave of backlash for those comments. "This guy that we have put in charge has tried to divide us once again".

"The idea of going to the White House as part of a championship team is awesome", Kerr said.

His presidency has spurred some in the sports community to be more vocal about their political views. LeBron James and Stephen Curry may be rivals on the court but LeBron did not hesitate to defend Curry from President Trump.

"I've been fortunate enough to meet President Reagan, both Bushes, Clinton, and Obama", Kerr said.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners when someone disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now".

Palace's attempt to stop themselves from slipping to a sixth successive defeat was, in the second half anyway, largely pathetic. Midfielder Ilkay Gundogan (knee) and defender Vincent Kompany (calf) are not yet fit.

The Golden State Warriors have not yet received a formal invitation to the White House after their championship win in June.

"In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we'll constructively use our trip to the nation's capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion - the values that we embrace as an organization".

Trump later added on Twitter that "if a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars" that person "should not be allowed to disrespect" the flag or country.

Dan Wetzel, a columnist with YahooSports.com, said Trump's comments will create more protests from players and galvanize support among their peers.

DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the NFL Players Association, tweeted: "We will never back down".

Durant, the reigning NBA Finals MVP, said last month he would boycott any trip to the White House, taking aim at Trump's response to racially charged violence in Charlottesville.

"You know, some owner is going to do that".

Trump was slammed for his Curry remarks on Twitter, including by filmmaker Ava DuVernay.

Please, I beg you, continue to play with fire.

"That's a total disrespect of our heritage".

The Warriors responded with their own statement on their website.

"It's a flawless example of where the president gets it right", said Christopher Ruddy, the CEO of Newsmax and a longtime Trump friend, who said team officials and the news media were not in line with much of the country. New York Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch described Trump's remarks as "inappropriate, offensive and divisive".
