President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he has agreed to a short-term deal to temporarily reopen the government for three weeks, ending the longest closure in U.S. history at 35 days.
This got us thinking -- the timing sure was interesting. Coincidence or not, everything ties back to the Warriors.
The news comes one day after the team was seen taking pictures with Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, in Washington, D.C., after the Dubs' 126-118 win over the Wizards on Thursday.
Though the Warriors made it clear they were not going to pay Trump a visit during their trip our nation's capital, they did spend time with a former President on Thursday. The team met with Barack Obama before the game in a players-only gathering, which was reportedly set up by Steph Curry.
Last year, the Warriors toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture during their lone trip to Washington D.C., instead of visiting the White House. Of course, that came after Trump infamously withdrew the Warriors' invitation -- before they even received one.
From Curry taking pictures with Pelosi to arranging the team to meet President Obama, two things are clear -- the government is back open (for now), and it's time to make Steph a three-time MVP.
