SEAT PLEASANT, Md. -- Kevin Durant says he will not visit Chief executive Donald Trump at the White House if the NBA champion Golden State Enthusiast are invited.

"Nah, I won't do that, " said Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP. "I don't respect who's in office right now. "

Durant chatted to ESPN on Thursday as his hometown of Seat Pleasant celebrated Kevin Durant Day for all of his achievements on and off the court.

The Enthusiast visit the nation's capital Feb. 28 to take on the Buenos aires Wizards. The White House has not extended a formal invitation to the Enthusiast.

Durant expounded on why he would bypass a White House visit, a ritual for professional teams coming off championship conditions.

"I don't agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that, " said Durant, who said it wasn't an organizational decision. "That's just me personally, but if i know my guys sufficiently, they'll all agree with me. "

Durant's hometown is 11 miles from downtown Buenos aires, D. C. Ever since he was a kid, he dreamed of taking the Jimmy O'Brien Trophy to the front steps of the White House.

However, Trump's divisive rhetoric over the past few years and his controversial public response to what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend have caused many athletes and politicians to voice their frustrations.

"I Golden State Warriors t-shirt just wanted to sit back and analyze everything and gather my thoughts, " Durant said. "I wanted to say something immediately, but I definitely want to be the voice of where I come from and people who have come from my neighborhood and deal with oppression.

"I'm comprising a lot of people. As far as what's going on in our country, for one, as an jogger, you have to compliment Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, CP3 [Chris Paul] [and] Dwyane Wade for starting that conversation last year. Russell Westbrook also said something in his speech. A lot [of] guys with platforms have drove the conversation in a good direction. And what's going on in Charlottesville, that was unfathomable. "

Heather Heyer, 32, was slain Wednesday when a car, allegedly driven by James Alex Fields Jr., plowed into a crowd that was protesting the white nationalists. Over a dozen demonstrators were also injured.

Durant believes the chief executive has played a role in the escalation of racial tension in the united states and the public rise of white supremacists.

"He's definitely driving it, " Durant said. "I feel ever since he's experienced office, or since he ran for the presidency, our country has been so divided, and it's really not a coincidence.

We had so much hope in our communities where I come from because we had a stephen curry jersey black chief executive, and that was a first.
