Donald Trump has already made the decision for maybe the most famous member of the Golden State Warriors as the team mulls the decision of whether or not to attend the White House.

Superstar point guard Steph Curry is no longer invited.

The President made the announcement in a tweet Saturday morning following statements from Curry on Friday detailing why he would be skipping the event should the reigning NBA Champions make the traditional visit to the White House.

"Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team," Trump said in his tweet. "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!"

On Friday, Curry spoke out on the subject at the team's media day.

"By acting and not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country, what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye toward," Curry said, according to ESPN.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says the team is still in the process of deciding if they will attend.

NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant has already said he will not be going to the White House as he does not respect President Trump.
