Donald Trump Calls Out LeBron James For ‘Racist Rants’: He’s Doing Nothing To Bring Our Country Together!

Donald Trump Calls Out LeBron James For ‘Racist Rants’: He’s Doing Nothing To Bring Our Country Together!

Donald Trump might not be president anymore, but he still has a message for Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. 

While Donald Trump was banned from Twitter just before he left office, he released a statement to D.C. reporter Ben Jacobs, who shared it on the social media platform.

It reads,

“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 belong and distinguished history of the League.”

It continues,

“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!”

His comments come just a day after LeBron James shared a controversial photo and caption of Nicholas Reardon, the officer who fatally shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant earlier this week.

He posted a picture of Reardon just after former officer Derek Chauvin was convicted for George Floyd’s death and wrote,

“YOU’RE NEXT… #ACCOUNTABILITY”

He later deleted the tweet and explained,

“I’m so d*** tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate – This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY”

He added,

“ANGER [doesn’t do] any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and eduating does though! My anger is still here for what happened to that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”
