It looks like LeBron James has finally had enough of Donald Trump.
Hours after Trump uninvited the Golden State Warriors to the White House because of Steph Curry's hesitance to make the trip, the Cleveland star has spoken out.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

Calling the President of the United States a "bum" may be seen as a risky move, but James' comments are likely to be met with widespread support from other players in the NBA.
The President of the United States regularly invites Championship-winning teams to the White House in the months after their triumph. New England Patriots. the SuperBowl champions were the first team to visit the White House under Trump's presidency, despite the absence of Tom Brady.
On Friday afternoon, Curry revealed he had no interest in going, but his comments seem to have inspired Trump's decision. The Golden State Warriors previously visited the White House after the 2015 title, when Barack Obama was still in charge.
Trump's comments came less than 24 hours after claiming any NFL player (or as he called them, a "son of a bitch") should be "fired" if the disrespected the American national anthem.
Curry and James may be the biggest of rivals on the court, but when it comes to matters away from the sport, they will back each other, in what is becoming an increasingly racially sensitive American society.
