Donald Trump has withdrawn an invitation to NBA champions Golden State Warriors to visit the White House after Steph Curry declared ‘I don’t want to go’.

‘Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team,’ the president tweeted Saturday morning. ‘Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!’

The Golden State Warriors players and coaches were set to make a joint decision as to whether or not they’d visit Trump to celebrate their 2016-17 NBA Championship at this season.

‘I don’t want to go,’ Warriors All-Star and former NBA MVP Curry said at Friday’s media day. ‘That’s kind of the nucleus of my belief.’

‘It’s not just me going to the White House,’ he continued. ‘If it was, this would be a pretty short conversation. Like I said, it’s the organization, it’s the team. It’s hard to say because I don’t know exactly what we’re going to do. If we do go, don’t go or whatever, my beliefs stay the same.’

Coach Steve Kerr told ESPN that the Warriors would meet as a team to discuss it and make a decision. He added that the White House has yet to extend a White House invitation, which customarily is made during a congratulatory call after a team has won a title.

Traditionally, the reigning champions in major American team sports visit the White House when they’re in Washington. The Warriors did meet with then-President Barack Obama after winning the 2014-15 NBA title, but the team was not openly critical of Obama as it has been of Trump.

Curry is an outspoken supporter of Obama and they are said to be friends.

Finals MVP Kevin Durant previously told ESPN that he ‘doesn’t respect’ the President and would refuse to go the White House.

    Trump, you are the leader of the free world, a representative of all that is great in America. For the love of God, will you please curb your arrogance. You can be tough all you want, but don’t do it publicly. BE PRESIDENTIAL. You may need to return to Miss May’s School of Executive Branch Etiquette for a refresher course.
