Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins Accept White House Invite
Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins announced on Sunday that they have accepted an invitation to the White House.
The Pittsburgh Penguins said in a statement Sunday:
The Pittsburgh Penguins respect the institution of the Office of the President, and the long tradition of championship teams visiting the White House. We attended White House ceremonies after previous championships – touring the historic building and visiting briefly with Presidents George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama – and have accepted an invitation to attend again this year.
Any agreement or disagreement with a president’s politics, policies or agenda can be expressed in other ways. However, we very much respect the rights of other individuals and groups to express themselves as they see fit.
President Trump tweeted out, “Please to inform that the Champion Pittsburgh Penguins of the NHL will be joining me at the White House for Ceremony. Great team!”
