Trump Welcomes The Chicago Cubs Back To The White House For Another Visit
Although the Chicago Cubs already visited the White House in recognition of their World Series championship when Obama was still president, the team returned to the White House on Wednesday to visit with Donald Trump.
The president shook the hands of Cubs manager Joe Madden and many of the players in attendance before offering a few remarks.
“This is a great team, and they were actually here, but they wanted to be here with Trump,” the president joked, acknowledging the fact that the team had already visited his predecessor five months beforehand.

The Cubs have been playing the Washington Nationals for the past few days and took some time out of their visit to the nation’s capital to bring their World Series trophy back to the White House.
The visit with Trump was far from a traditional team visit to the White House and didn’t consist of much more than another photo opportunity for the championship team with another president.
“Your team’s doing OK,” Trump told the team of their performance so far this season. “But you’re going to do great starting now, right?”
