Donald Trump is currently in battle with Democratic leader, Joe Biden, to keep his position as POTUS. He was on The Rush Limbaugh Show where he took aim at the NBA and its top star in Lebron James with his “More Than A Vote” campaign to get more people involved in the voting process.
In the clip below, via TMZ, Trump lashed out at the NBA for getting too political, while also sending shots at LeBron. Trump claimed that LeBron is a spokesman for the Democrats and that he is also a hater.
“LeBron is a spokesman for the democratic party and a very nasty spokesman,” Trump said. “Because, again, I’ve done so much for the Black community and people don’t wanna see that and he’s a great basketball player but people don’t wanna see a guy that way. They don’t want to see that. We have enough difficulty during the week, you don’t wanna sit down watching a basketball game and then watch somebody that hates your guts, okay, He’s a hater.”
The President admitted he doesn’t know who is apart of the NBA Finals. Although Donald Trump has not paid attention to the league’s playoffs, every single NBA arena being turned into a voting station come November 3rd as the league is paying close attention to the elections. Meanwhile, the NBA Commissioner has stated that there will be a removal next season of the promotion of “Black Lives Matter”.
”My sense is there’ll be somewhat a return to normalcy, that those messages will largely be left to be delivered off the floor, and I understand those people who are saying ‘I’m on your side, but I want to watch a basketball game,'” Silver said. The NBA commissioner went on to note just how important it is to support the players in their mission.
