President Donald Trump hailed the University of Alabama football team's "win for the ages" in their latest championship season. It's a tradition that comes with winning a championship in any major sport.
To which Trump replied: "They shouldn't have let you go, coach".
"I was watching", he told the team.
"Coach Saban addressed it and just said, 'Hey, we're doing this regardless of your political thoughts, '" Pierschbacher said (via AL.com). Now, the team returns to Washington to celebrate its remarkable fifth championship in the past nine seasons. "It's an honor. And just to be able to say that you've gone to the White House is something that you can cherish forever.' So that was basically the extent of that". The World Series champion Houston Astros met with President Trump last month, but the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors had their invitation revoked last summer via an angry tweet from the president after two-time MVP Stephen Curry indicated he'd rather not go. Head coach Nick Saban and his winning teams also visited President Obama four times during the previous administration.
Alabama is not following in the footsteps of those professional teams.
The Crimson Tide are scheduled to visit the White House on Tuesday. It will be the first visit for the Crimson Tide since Trump took office last January.
"It's an incredible honor for us to be invited to the White House". It will be on the website, whitehouse.gov/live along with the White House page on YouTube. Alabama is certainly happy things didn't work out for the 66-year-old in the NFL, as it's won five national titles since 2009.

Still, despite Trump's politics, players are excited about the visit whether they agree with him.
