Trump welcomes college sports champions at WH reception

Trump welcomes college sports champions at WH reception

President Donald Trump poses for photographs with the University of Washington women's rowing team during an event with NCAA championship teams at the White House, Friday, Nov. 17, 2017, in Washington.

Meanwhile The White House has said it will host 18 NCAA teams at the reception, ABC News reported. Before the season began, Staley said she would only allow herself and the team to focus on this season.

The Gamecocks now join a growing list of recent sports teams to not make the customary White House stop after winning championships. "We haven't gotten an invitation yet and that in itself speaks volumes", she told the AP. Included are select seniors from the Penn State's men's wrestling and women's rugby teams. He even declared to the West Virginia rifle team "we saved the second amendment!"

Of course, not all teams were able to send their full squads because, while they may be national champions, many of these stars are still college students with classes and practices.

However by September the team had still not received their invitation, despite other teams receiving theirs. What's worse, teams that won after them got theirs sooner.

Those comments came just a few weeks after President Trump rescinded the Golden State Warriors' invitation to the Whtie Hosue because Steph Curry said he didn't want them going. Other teams, such as the University of North Carolina men's basketball team, also declined their invitation.

When Trump spotted Maryland lacrosse attacker Dylan Maltz wearing a blue Trump '16 tie, he pumped his hand and brought him to the front of the team's riser near the South Lawn.
