Trump welcomes World Series champion Cubs to White House

The Chicago Cubs visited President Trump at the White House on Wednesday, making their second trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue since winning the 2016 World Series.

Gilbert's visit drew national attention because he was included in the ceremony for Cubs players, coaches and executives with president Donald Trump in the West Wing, although the timing of the Cubs' and Gilbert's arrivals was a coincidence.

Reporters and members of the Cubs were gathered in the Roosevelt Room just before 2 p.m., when Trump "called over Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers over and they all stood for pictures", according to the pool report.

Trump highlighted the Cubs owners, the Ricketts family: Team resident Tom and brother and co-owners Todd and Pete, the GOP governor of Nebraska.

Trump met with manager Joe Maddon and some Cubs on Wednesday, and he calls the Cubs a "great team". "I'd never do that to the president of the United States".

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump has welcomed the manager and several players from the World Series champion Chicago Cubs to the White House. Gilbert accompanied his own team to meet then-President Obama at the White House in November to celebrate the Cavs' 2016 title.

Representatives for Gilbert's company said previous year that he did not host the September fundraiser and that the space was rented for that event.
