Trump welcomes World Series champion Cubs to White House

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

Trump met with manager Joe Maddon and some Cubs on Wednesday, and he calls the Cubs a "great team". "They were actually here, but they wanted to be here with Trump, right?"

The 2017 Cubs have been struggling.

"Your team's doing OK", he said with a hedge in his voice.

"I would say, I guess you can't say great season, right?"

The Cubs already visited President Barack Obama back in January, but decided to make another stop at the White House to see President Trump while in town to play the Washington Nationals. "Where's Dan? Where's Dan Gilbert?".

The Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in the 2016 World Series.

Trump noted that he had tried to bring Ricketts into his administration as deputy Commerce Secretary.

'I just don't feel like I want to go, ' said reliever Pedro Strop.

In September, Trump attended a fundraiser at the Chrysler House in downtown Detroit, a building Gilbert owns.

During the event in the Roosevelt Room, Trump asked, "Where's Dan?" The comment came after the businessman and his wife, Jennifer, each contributed $75,000 each to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising venture between the Clinton presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the state Democratic parties.

They gave him a team jersey printed with "45" in recognition of his status as the 45th USA president. Gilbert accompanied his own team to meet then-President Obama at the White House in November to celebrate the Cavs' 2016 title. President Donald Trump even called out for him by name amid a flurry of shutter snaps.
