President Trump welcomes World Series champion Cubs to White House

As Trump congratulated the Cubs on their achievement past year, he unexpectedly called Gilbert out from a backroom near the Roosevelt Room, according to a pool report. Not only did the Cubs defeat the Cleveland Indians to win the 2016 World Series, but Gilbert's Cavs just lost the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors. A source close to Gilbert said his visit to the White House while the Cubs were there was purely coincidental.

The pool reporter told The News Gilbert was in "a back room, but (Trump) called him out".

"I had two fingers out". 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. As of Tuesday evening of the 22 players surveyed, 10 planned to skip the visit. "It's an honor. No political ties".

The Cubs have done a second round of celebrating while in the nation's capital for a four-game series with the Nationals.
