Penguins visit Donald Trump, White House with Stanley Cup

Trump later rescinded a White House invitation to the National Basketball Association team.

The press office in Trump's White House has seen particularly unusual challenges in effectively sharing the White House's message as the President regularly uses social media to directly address the public.

During today's White House press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was grilled on Trump's repetitive false claims about taxes by One America's Trey Yingst.

Trump then turned to Burkle and praised his ability to negotiate before inviting him to get involved in re-negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement. Until this past season, the last time it had been done by a team was almost two decades ago, in 1997 and 1998.

Last month, Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry said he wasn't in favour of a potential visit to the White House with his teammates following their championship win last season.

After criticizing National Football League players, President Donald Trump mostly stuck to hockey in honoring the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins.

"Just as much as your five Stanley Cup wins, your generosity has shown the true character of this incredible organization, you are true, true champions and incredible patriots", Trump said.

"This is really a truly great group of world champions", Trump said.

Trump also had some fun with Phil Kessel, telling the Penguins forward he may not be the best hockey player in his own family, according to KDKA's Bob Pompeani.

Gidley confirmed to CNN he will be joining the White House. He tweeted that he instructed Vice President Mike Pence to leave a game between the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts on Sunday if there were any anthem protests, which Pence did.

Sullivan also said the team presented Trump with an undisclosed gift.
