Kevin Durant told ESPN on Thursday that he will not visit the White House if invited.
About a dozen professional, U.S. national and major college teams visit the White House each year to celebrate their championship.
“Nah, I won’t do that,” said Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.”
The Golden State Warriors have yet to officially receive an invitation from The White House, but it is expected that the invitation would be extended for February 28th, the day the Warriors play the Washington Wizards.
“I don’t agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that,” Durant explained. “That’s just me personally, but if I know my guys well enough, they’ll all agree with me.”

11 miles away from downtown Washington is Durant’s hometown. Ever since he was a kid, he always imagined taking the Larry O’Brien Trophy to the White House.
Durant went on to accuse President Trump of increasing racial tension in America, dividing the country rather than unifying it.
