Stanley Cup champion Penguins visit Trump at White House

Stanley Cup champion Penguins visit Trump at White House

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong will meet US President Donald Trump at the White House on Oct 23, the White House press secretary said in a statement on Tuesday (Oct 10). "Hopefully it stays that way".

"This guy - man, can you play", Trump said.

"I don't think we felt any pressure because we've stated clearly from the get go that our acceptance of the invitation to the White House was not political and that it was simply a celebration of this group of players winning a championship and to honor the office of the president and the White House".

Trump tweeted afterward that he asked Pence to leave the stadium if people protested, leading members of the 49ers to accuse Pence of a PR stunt.

Since Mr Trump's stunning election win in November past year, the two leaders have spoken to each other on at least three occasions.

Trump has long drawn the ire of sports stars, including LeBron James, who campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.

Trump congratulated the Penguins for being the first back-to-back Cup champions since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998, complimented co-owner Mario Lemieux's golf game and drew boos when he referenced Pittsburgh's upcoming game against the rival Washington Capitals.

After greeting a few team personnel, Trump approached the podium to declare: "By the way, everybody wanted to be here today".

Trump's most fiery comments about sports protests came during a rally in Alabama in September. "He's fired, '" Trump said. Do you know how to win or what?

Trump has called on National Football League owners to fire players who don't stand for the anthem and urged fans to boycott games in a series of tweets. "If you do not Condemn this divisive Rhetoric you are Condoning it!"
