Kevin Durant will not visit the White House if the Golden State Warriors are invited.
"Nah, I won't do that," said Durant. "I don't respect who's in office right now."
The Warriors are scheduled to play at the Washington Wizards on Feb. 28th, but the White House has yet to extend a formal invitation.
"I don't agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that," said Durant, who said it wasn't an organizational decision. "That's just me personally, but if I know my guys well enough, they'll all agree with me."
Durant believes the president has played a role in the escalation of racial tension in the United States and the public rise of white supremacists.
"He's definitely driving it," Durant said. "I feel ever since he's got into office, or since he ran for the presidency, our country has been so divided, and it's not a coincidence. When [Barack] Obama was in office, things were looking up. We had so much hope in our communities where I come from because we had a black president, and that was a first.
"So to see that and to be where we are now, it just felt like we took a turn for the worse, man. It all comes from who is in the administration. It comes from the top. Leadership trickles down to the rest of us. So, you know, if we have someone in office that doesn't care about all people, then we won't go anywhere as a country. In my opinion, until we get him out of here, we won't see any progress."
