Trump blasts LeBron James over ‘racist rant’

Former US President Donald 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.

“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!” the former president continued.

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.

“YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY,” the Los Angeles Laker star wrote in a post with a photo of Officer Nicholas Reardon, identified as the cop who shot and killed Bryant.

James’s tweet received a flurry of backlash on social media, with a handful of Republican lawmakers denouncing the basketball player’s comment.

James later said that he deleted the Tweet because it was “used to create more hate.”
