On Tuesday (Jan. 17), the four gentlemen were pictured with members of congress as they mingled during the event’s reception, catching photos with former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and current Vice President Kamala Harris.
California’s rap royalty were also spotted chatting up former Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and taking photos at the White House podium. 40 Water and his Cali cohorts are regulars at The Chase Center, attending every Warriors game, ranging from blowout losses to Championship wins, so getting invited to the house with GS just makes sense.
While this may mark the first time the four men have been to the President’s home base together, this isn’t the first outing to the White House for the Warriors. The Steph Curry-led team went to the nation’s most important monument in 2015 to visit then-President Barack Obama, but skipped visiting after their 2017 and 2018 wins, protesting Donald Trump’s presidency.
During their first visit in seven years, the Warriors chopped it up with President Joe Biden and VP Harris. As the squad took pictures with the current regime, Curry and the Bay Area faithful, gifted America’s leaders their own customized jerseys, with fitting numbers to boot.
Elsewhere, President Biden is pledging to assist Africa in a significant way. According to the Associated Press, the President announced on Dec. 15 that the US would be donating $2 billion in food aid to Africa. The announcement arrived during the three-day US-Africa Leaders summit, the first since President Barack Obama hosted the event in 2014.
Biden asserted that “Africa belongs at the table,” committing to making a trip to the Sub-Saharan regions of Africa in the coming year.
