SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Saturday morning President Trump tweeted that Warriors star Stephen Curry’s invitation to the White House has been “withdrawn!”
Curry’s wife Ayesha replied in a hurry, throwing the President somewhat of a curve ball.
Instead of talking trash, she used Trump’s tweet as a platform to advocate for a good, immediately pressing cause.
With an eye-rolling emoji she plainly said “Ok.”
🙄Okay… Donate to earthquake relief here!!! https://t.co/HL5cvwbGtQ

She then posted a link to help children affected by recent earthquakes in Mexico.
LeBron James also responded, but he took a more aggressive approach.
He called the President a “bum,” and said “Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”
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!

This is most likely just the beginning of high-profile responses that will be fired at Trump throughout the weekend.
Several others including Kobe Bryant, Draymond Green, and Chris Paul are already weighing in on this and Trump’s comments yesterday on NFL player protests:
A #POTUS who’s name alone creates division and anger. Who’s words inspire dissension and hatred can’t possibly “Make America Great Again”
