The Cubs plan to visit the White House. However it’s unclear if they’ll make the trip while Obama is still in office or when newly elected president, Donald Trump, comes into term. The Cub’s president, Theo Epstein, publically supported presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Epstein said he’s still processing Tuesday’s results. President Obama, being a Chicago native, invited the Cubs to visit the White House before he leaves.
