Trump welcomes Cubs to Oval Office

President Donald Trump holds a Chicago Cubs jersey as he meets with members of the 2016 World Series Champions Chicago Cubs Wednesday

The Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in 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.

President Donald Trump pauses as he is asked a question on health care as he meets with members of the 2016 World Series Champions Chicago Cubs, Wednesday, June 28, 2017, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington.

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert didn't know he would be crashing the Chicago Cubs' party.

The team presented Mr. Trump with a No. 45 Cubs jersey during a photo opportunity in the Oval Office.


The National Basketball Association team owner even posed for a photo with the Cubs and Trump.

They gave him a team jersey printed with "45" in recognition of his status as the 45th USA president. Maybe all of the Cubs didn't want to be with Trump, but they wanted to see the White House because that is one of the perks of winning a championship. Trump then described the Cavs' season as "good. not great".

According to the Sun Times, 10 Cubs players surveyed before the event said they planned to skip the visit to Trump's White House. The White House documented the visit on their Snapchat account on Wednesday afternoon.

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

"I prefer to stay in my room, get rest and get prepared for the game", Rondon said.
