Trump Invites Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder To The White House

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury and Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder fought in the Heavyweight Boxing Championship on Saturday.

Fury soundly beat Wilder within seven rounds and reclaimed his title “Heavyweight Champion of the World.” I was rooting for Wilder, the American KO King, and my husband (being British) was pulling for Fury.

Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder in one of the best fights Fury has ever fought. Watching Fury warm-up and how loose his mind and body looked made me think he had an advantage going into the match.

They showed the fighters’ locker rooms on split-screen, you could see Fury laughing and singing with his training staff; in stark contrast, Wilder had a quiet locker room while he was stretched on the floor by one of his trainers.

On his way out of the White House to travel to India, Trump stopped to talk to reporters and had only praise for the fight and the two fighters.

That was a great fight,” Trump said.

Trump praised the fighters, “two great fighters, it was really very exciting.”

Trump, on his way to India, stayed up late to watch the fight. He tells reporters that, “maybe we have to bring them both to the White House-I don’t know- because that was really a good one; in fact, I think we will do that.”

This would be a significant shift in the way celebrity athletes treat Trump. I hope both fighters make it to the White House.

Trump will start securing more independent voters appealing to the large sports market that is maybe less involved in politics but instead care more about the celebrity endorsements.
