When asked by Sam Amick of USA Today if we would accept an invitation, Iguodala responded, "Hell nah."
On Tuesday, the Warriors released the following statement regarding a potential White House meeting with President Donald Trump, via ABC7 : "Today is all about celebrating our championship. We have not received an invitation to the White House but will make those decisions when and if necessary."

Per Amick, Iguodala believes racism in the United States has gotten worse during Trumps' time in office:
"We all know [that it is getting worse]. I think it's just the ignorance, the convenient ignorance. [It's] not to say that people aren't aware, but they just don't want to address it [because] they don't want to be attached to it so they ignore a lot of the bad things that happen. I feel like there are actions that occur, that continue the dividing of everyone. And I think that's done on purpose."
Iguodala isn't the first Warriors player or coach to be outspoken against Trump.
In May, Dubs head coach Steve Kerr was highly critical of the president, according to Scott Gleeson of USA Today:
"Frankly, I think it's why Trump couldn't be more ill-suited to be president, because he's a blowhard. You don't see some of the qualities you talk about, the resilience, the ability to communicate, the compassion. None of that. But in the old days, a lot of great coaches who maybe didn't have those, there was still a fiber there, whatever it was. To be a great leader, there have to be some qualities in there. Has anyone ever thought that Donald Trump was a great leader?"
When the Warriors won the championship at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season, they visited the White House while Barack Obama was still in office.
Trump hosted his first White House visit for a championship-winning team in April when the New England Patriots were in attendance after defeating the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
