Golden State Warriors players and coaches celebrate with the Larry O'Brien Trophy after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in game five of the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena, June 12, 2017.

The Golden State Warriors, the reigning National Basketball Association champions, have chose to visit local children in Washington, D.C. after President Donald Trump disinvited them from the White House. The visit will be closed to media. "So they made their plans", the coach told ESPN.

The Warriors will be the rare sports team to not visit the White House after winning a championship.

In lieu of visiting the White House, the Warriors have made a decision to go on a private tour of an undisclosed location on February 27, a team source confirmed with The Chronicle. However, Steph Curry said that "we're not trying to divide and separate this country" when the drama between the team and the president went down this offseason. "I want the players to have a good day and to do something positive and to enjoy what they're doing". But unlike the last time they visited Washington as defending champs, Stephen Curry & Co. won't be making a stop at the White House.

YouTube Removes School Shooting Conspiracy Video From Trending Section
Hogg was visiting family and friends in Los Angeles when he recorded a confrontation between one of his friends and a lifeguard. According to Variety , the video , entitled " DAVID HOGG THE ACTOR....", was reportedly removed at approximately 11 a.m.

Although details of the outing have yet to be shared, ESPN's Chris Haynes and Ramona Shelburne reported that the team wanted it to be a "personal intimate experience". The team was also invited to celebrate the title at the U.S. Capitol by Nancy Pelosi, whose district includes much of San Francisco, but not Oakland, where the Warriors play.

But a consensus emerged around the option agreed upon because the players didn't want to be seen as politicizing an event.

Ultimately, though, the team chose to avoid making a political statement with the celebration, Draymond Green told ESPN. "Why make it about [politics]?"
