Trump welcomes World Series champion Cubs to White House

President Donald Trump pauses as he is asked

Gilbert's visit drew national attention because he was included in the ceremony for Cubs players, coaches and executives with president Donald Trump in the West Wing, although the timing of the Cubs' and Gilbert's arrivals was a coincidence.

Albert Almora, Jr, the Cubs center fielder, extended his middle finger while standing just a few feet from Trump as the president sat down at the Resolute Desk.

A representative for Rock Ventures, the company encompassing Gilbert's business portfolio, said in a statement the Detroit-based businessman was at the White House to educate Trump "on the incredible transformation that has taken place in the city, and the opportunities that remain ahead of us".

With Giro champion Tom Dumoulin and 2014 champion Vincenzo Nibali sitting out, however, Porte is considered the top challenger. With neither a long time trial nor many mountain-top finishes, the course doesn't suit his strengths.

Trump also told Cubs Manager Joe Maddon, "Ask him how he's doing with LeBron".

Trump highlighted the Cubs owners, the Ricketts family: Team resident Tom and brother and co-owners Todd and Pete, the GOP governor of Nebraska. At an event that should have been non-political and fun, Trump had to make a visit by the Cubs about himself. 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.

Trump hijacked his photo-op with the world champion Chicago Cubs to complain about how sports teams don't want to be seen with Trump.

The informal "meet and greet" was the second time the team has visited the White House to mark their historic 2016 World Series win.

Trump welcomed the manager and several players from the World Series champion Chicago Cubs to the White House on Wednesday.

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