On Monday afternoon at the White House, Donald Trump welcomed the Houston Astros in honor of their 2017 World Series victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. After tweeting about his experience with the team, the president didn't get the best reaction from critics.

Trump on Houston Astros

Donald Trump's relationship with professional athletes has not been good since becoming the President of the United States.

It all started back in September when Trump spoke out in opposition to the NFL players who were protesting during the national anthem. While the players were using the opportunity to bring attention to police brutality and racial injustice, Trump accused the demonstrates of disrespecting the military and American flag. Trump went as far as to call for those players to be fired, which sparked a feud between the president and many athletes.

While Donald Trump has also engaged in Twitter wars with Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, and has faced criticism from the likes of LeBron James, he did welcome the Houston Astros of the MLB to the White House to honor their World Series win, despite players Carlos Beltran, Carlos Correa and Ken Giles all refusing to attend.

During a tweet on March 12, Trump wrote "It was my great honor to welcome the 2017 World Series Champion Houston Astros to the White House!." As expected, the Astros' visit to the White House didn't go over well with many who oppose the current administration.

Twitter reaction

After Donald Trump met with World Series champions Houston Astros at the White House, social media users didn't hod back.

"Why did you resend your invitation to the Golden State Warriors? Too many black people on the team?" Bishop Talbert Swan rhetorically asked.

"Means a lot from the guy that loves to grab em by the third base," a Twitter user wrote.

"Listening to this speech was like hearing flies around an old opened can of tuna," yet another tweet added. "Remind me once again what has he done for Puerto Rico?" an additional tweet pointed out.

"Did he make good on his million dollar pledge to Harvey victims?

Just checking?" a social media user wondered. "WTG Carlos Beltran and Carlos Correa for boycotting the WH visit due to their disappointment with the White House's response—or lack thereof—to the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico in 2017," a tweet stated. As the backlash continued to pour in, it became clear that the opposition to Donald Trump and the current administration was not going to slow down anytime soon.
