 The North Carolina Tarheels college basketball team will not be visiting the White House. A team's spokesman said on Saturday that even though the Tar Heels were invited to visit the White House they will not be going. This is only a few hours after Donald Trump released this tweet below.

UNC men's basketball team spokesman said that the University and the White House couldn't agree on a date. “We couldn’t find a date that worked for both parties,” he said. “We tried about eight or nine dates and between they couldn’t work out that date, we couldn’t work out that date, so – we would have liked to have gone, but not going.”

The Golden State Warriors said Saturday that they wouldn't go to the White House even if they would have been invited. Now the Tarheels will not be attending the White House. 

Cleveland Cavaliers star player LeBron James tweeted at Trump that begun with "U bum". Trump isn't afraid to lash out on twitter to professional athletes.
