LeBron James called Donald Trump a “bum” on Saturday morning after the president tweeted that he had withdrawn Steph Curry’s invitation to the White House. James followed up by saying that “Going to the White House was a great honor until you [Trump] 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!

Trump had withdrawn Curry’s invitation even though the Warriors’ point guard said a day earlier that he wouldn’t have attended anyway.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!

The White House had never formally invited the Warriors when Trump announced that he was withdrawing Curry’s invitation.
This isn’t the first tweet James has sent out against Trump. Just a month ago, James lashed out at Trump on Twitter, saying that the President “Made hate fashionable again.”
