The Houston Astros have not decided whether they’ll visit the White House to meet with President Donald Trump if an invitation is extended.
“We just won the first world championship in Houston Astros history,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “We’re also in one of the most divided countries, polarizing countries in politics. I don’t know that this is the best stage for everybody to declare one way or the other and try to comment on the moment and be too much of a political statement.”
The New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Penguins and Clemson Tigers have all visited the White House in recent months following championship victories. The Golden State Warriors did not make the trip after being uninvited by Trump.
