However even on much less critical issues, Trump manages to show a disturbing absence of widespread maturity. Whether or not it’s a manifestation of lengthy-standing character defects or the onset of senility is an open query. The outcome is identical. And it may be seen clearly in Trump’s newest Twitter tirade. On Saturday morning Trump lashed out at Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors:
Donald Trump vs. Steph Curry
Going to the White Home is taken into account an ideal honor for a championship workforce.Stephen Curry is hesitating,subsequently invitation is withdrawn!

However as fellow NBA star Lebron James tweeted, “Going to White Home was a fantastic honor till you confirmed up!” Additionally, Trump ought to know that Curry has already been to the White Home to go to an actual president:
