The Toronto Raptors are set to have their NBA championship victory parade Monday but a decision has yet to be made about whether the team will end up visiting the White House.
The mayor of Ottawa – Canada’s capital – tweeted Friday that the Raptors should skip the White House visit and head directly to the city instead to visit the country’s parliament.
“Hey @Raptors forget the White House for a victory lap. Come to Ottawa and parliament hill so Canada can congratulate you! How about it @JustinTrudeau,” Mayor Jim Watson wrote.
It wasn’t clear whether the Raptors will be invited to the White House. President Trump hasn’t tweeted about the Raptors since the team defeated the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last week.
Previously in 2017, Trump rescinded a White House invitation to the Warriors after they won the title. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant both had made remarks critical of the president’s administration.
