Another championship sports team has declined a Trump invite to the White House – it’s the South Carolina Women’s Basketball team, which was the 2017 NCAA champion team.

More from Fox News:
Trump met with 18 NCAA teams Friday, including the Texas A&M women’s equestrian team, Pennsylvania State University’s women’s rugby team and the University of Washington’s women’s rowing team at the White House.
However, Dawn Staley, the head coach of the University of South Carolina’s Gamecocks, said her team would be unable to attend.
“We did hear from the White House about attending (Friday’s) event, but we will not be able to attend,” Staley said in a statement. “As I’ve been saying since our practices for this season started, all of our focus is on the season ahead. The only invitation we are thinking about is to the 2018 NCAA Tournament.”
I dunno, at this point it’s like a 50/50 get that Russian shenanigans will take down el Trumpo. Do you really wanna be on the team that took a photo op with the guy? Instead, work on winning the championship next year when you take pics with President Pence…. just kidding, Trumpers, it’s a joke!!!
