The WNBA champions, Seattle Storm, have no intention of going to the White House, although they have not yet received an invitation from President Donald Trump.

Veteran setter Sue Bird confirmed that the team had no interest in going after the team defeated the Washington Mystics in a clash on Wednesday with a final score of 98-82.

"At this point, it is not even necessary to discuss it," Bird said Friday, according to the Seattle Times.

& # 39; It has emerged. We pay attention to what happened with Minnesota not being invited. Everyone knew when everything happened with Steph Curry and LeBron (James) on social media, all that. We all pay attention and observe. "

Last year, Minnesota Lynx did not receive an invitation from the White House when they won the championship in 2017.

& I'm sure [President Trump] he's going to say we're not invited anyway, "Bird told KING 5," so everything goes well. "

When the Seattle storm won its championship in 2010, the team was invited to the White House and left.

"I've been very lucky to go, and it's exciting," Bird added. You go to the White House. I remember that I first went into the room to meet President Obama and the aura … it's crazy.

– Now, that's not the case anymore. It does not feel exciting. Nobody wants to go. It is totally changed. And that's disappointing because it used to be, as I said, something that most athletes would expect. "

Bird also visited the White House in 2002, when he won the NCAA title with Connecticut.

The feeling against the White House was shared by the loser of the Towers Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis.

She stated: "I believe that until people see a change, it's probably the norm. I do not see many people who will accept the invitation if they receive it. "

While in office, Trump has only been visited by Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, World Series champions Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup champions and NCAA Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers.

This year, Trump canceled a visit from the Philadelphia Eagles after most of the players promised they would not attend.

The Golden State Warriors refused to visit the White House in 2017, opting to visit the African American Museum. They were not invited this year after winning the championship.

Both NCAA champions in 2017 – the South Carolina women's team and the North Carolina men's team – rejected the White House invitations.

None of the NCAA 2018 champions, the Notre Dame women's team and the Villanova men's team, have not been invited this year.
