Trump pulls White House invitation to NBA star Steph Curry, raps protesting NFL stars

SOMERSET, N.J. >> President Donald Trump denounced protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two-day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation Saturday from league executives and star players alike.
