The Chicago Cubs visited President Trump at the White House on Wednesday, making their second trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue since winning the 2016 World Series.

President Trump also took some time to talk politics during the visit.

There was also a surprise guest: Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. 

Why Gilbert showed up to the White House to celebrate the Cubs is a bit of a mystery, but maybe he felt some connection to the Cubs, who also overcame a 3–1 deficit to win a title.
