A number of women’s teams attended an event in 2017, in which the president celebrated women’s and men’s college sports championships.
South Carolina women were invited to an event but declined so that they could train for the NCAA title. The coach at the time, Diane Staley, said when the team won (which it went on to do), they would welcome an invitation to the White House and would be happy to go.
She later told The Associated Press in late September that she hadn’t received an invite and "that spoke volumes".
The lack of women's college sports teams in the White House is painfully obvious.
Neither the Minnesota Lynx nor Seattle Storm – both Women’s NBA champions – were invited to the recent event. The Post confirms that every women's college basketball champion has been invited to the White House since 1983 - before Trump became president. That's five presidents.
Here are some of the women's college teams that should probably get a look in:
