A’ja Wilson is not happy with President Biden and has called him out. 

After the President’s Twitter account congratulated the NHL Stanley Cup Champions Las Vegas Golden Knights, a lot of the WNBA fans quickly wrote to the POTUS account saying that the Aces won the city’s first pro-championship

The account said, “Congrats to the Vegas @GoldenKnights on their first Stanley Cup in just their sixth season. The first major professional franchise in such a proud American city. Today, the team and entire community are champions.” 

A’ja Wilson would respond to the tweet by saying, “Twitter not letting me quote tweet potus tweet but BFFR when is our White House visit cause…” 

Since winning their championship, the Aces have not been invited to celebrate at the White House like other teams have been. This issue comes after First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden invited both Iowa and LSU women’s basketball teams to the White House after LSU won the tournament. 

LSU star Angel Reese called out the double invitation and said that it was offensive and disrespectful to her team and to the hard work that they put in.
