D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors “If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You”


On Friday, Steph Curry shared his opinion about the Golden State Warriors’ championship visit to the White House. Although he didn’t want to go for his own personal beliefs, the final decision would be left up to the team and organization. However, before the team was able to decide for themselves, Trump took offense to Curry’s statement and withdrew the invitation, prompting a Twitter storm of backlash.

In turn, the Warriors released a statement, saying they would use their trip to D.C. to embrace their team values of equality and inclusion. Shortly after the team’s announcement, another elected official in D.C. welcomed the team to the nation’s capital. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser shared a statement on social media welcoming the team to practice their First Amendment rights and/or lose to their beloved Washington Wizards during Warriors’ visit in February.

“We are Washington, D.C. We are proud to be our nation’s capital,” Bowser said. “We welcome over 20 million visitors a year. Whether you’re here to work, play, practice your First Amendment rights, or lose to our Wizards, we welcome all to visit our museums, our monuments, our restaurants, and our thriving neighborhoods if they do so peacefully and respectfully. While you’re here, Warriors, we are happy to identify ways for you to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion – what we call DC values. And if anyone ever tells you that you cannot come to DC, tell them Muriel Bowser invited you.”
