President Trump Blasts Lebron James In New Statement


President Trump absolutely blasted NBA superstar Lebron James.

First, let me fill you in on why President Trump spoke out.

Lebron James earlier in the week threatened a police officer’s life by tweeting a picture of the officer who shot a 16-year-old who was trying to stab another girl.

Along with the officer’s photo, James added the caption “you’re next”.

Well, now President Trump has spoken out against LeBron’s actions and was quoted saying “his racist rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning”.

Trump went on to say Lebron should just stick to playing basketball too.


The New York Post didn’t stay behind and covered Trump’s statement on Lebron:

President Donald Trump slammed NBA star LeBron James on Thursday for an inflammatory tweet about the Ohio cop who shot and killed 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.

“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA,” Trump said in a statement.

“His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning,” the statement said. “He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!”

Akron-born James, 36, drew Trump’s attention after he tweeted a picture of Columbus Police Officer Nicholas Reardon along with the ominous-sounding caption, “YOU’RE NEXT.”

The Hill got the scoop too:

President Trump slammed NBA superstar LeBron James on Thursday night, calling the basketball star’s “racist rants” “divisive, nasty, insulting and demeaning.”

“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA, which has just recorded the lowest television RATINGS, by far, in the long and distinguished history of the League,” Trump wrote in a statement released by his office.

Trump’s comments come after a Tweet James sent, then deleted, on Wednesday, which called for accountability in the fatal shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant by a Columbus, Ohio, police officer.

Imagine if a Conservative made a threat as Lebron did on Twitter, they would be gone in a heartbeat but being it’s a woke athlete it’s perfectly fine to put someone’s life in danger.
