Cubs To Make Second Visit To White House Just To See Trump
The Ricketts are big-time Republicans (except for Todd Rickett's sister, Laura) who gave $1 million to the Trump campaign after initially backing Ted Cruz. Co-owner Tom Ricketts helped set up the meeting. Trump nominated his brother, Todd Ricketts, to serve as Deputy Commerce Secretary, but he withdrew in April due to ethics concerns with his family owning the team. Maddon will also use the trip to talk with a group of young Republicans, according to ESPN. He's friends with Republican House Representative Lou Barletta, who supported Trump and loves the travel ban. It's unclear which players will be attending. But some fans are not taking this well.
White House visit set up by Ricketts family. Maddon didn't want to get into the politics of it. Was invited, it's the WH, he's going.— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) June 27, 2017
Will be seriously disappointed with any player that does so— Lisa Swiontek (@LisaS01) June 27, 2017
Maybe they'll try to explain to the WH why unions are actually a good thing.— TheYukster (@SetagayaGirl) June 27, 2017
