President Trump still hasn't invited WNBA champion Lynx to White House

After winning their fourth WNBA championship in seven years last October, the Lynx are still waiting on the customary White House invitation, coach Cheryl Reeve said at practice on Wednesday afternoon. She added that former President Barack Obama contacted the team immediately after it won the WNBA championship in 2011, 2013 and 2015.

“It’s certainly disappointing,” Reeve said. “It was really special with the other WNBA championships that we won to be able to get the word that we were going to get a phone call from the White House. And the players that were still in town, we could gather and it was something special to share with our players to have the President of the United States calling us and congratulating us and then at the end of the call saying he’d like to have us at the White House to celebrate.”
