President Donald Trump took him to task on Thursday night.
“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,” “His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning. He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!”
Trump said in a statement. Recent ratings are indeed at an all-time low after the NBA painted the politically-charged slogan “Black Lives Matter” on its courts.
In a now-deleted tweet, James had shared a photo of Nicholas Reardon, the police officer who killed Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday, along with the caption: “you’re next #accountability.”
Can’t say it any plainer…
Great video of her talking about the Cincinnatti shooting.
