LeBron James Explains Tweet In Video Response To President Donald Trump

President Donald Trump

"He doesn't understand the power that he has to lead... this handsome country", James said.

Trump tweeted Saturday that the invitation to the Warriors, who defeated James' Cavs in June for their second championship in three years, was "rescinded".

"If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast".


Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had been mum this weekend regarding the tension between the National Basketball Association and the Trump administration until now. "This guy that we have put in charge has tried to divide us once again". "And like I said on one of my social media platforms a couple days ago, the thing that kind of frustrated me and pissed me off a little bit is the fact that he's now - he used sport, he used the sports platform to try to divide us". They'll be the most popular person in the country for a week.

James referenced the white supremacist, neo-Nazi protest in Charlottesville, Virginia that claimed the life of a young woman, injured others and gave the American society pause about the state of race relations under the Trump administration. "Not one individual. And damn sure not him". While James added he wasn't going to discuss his impending free agency this season, these comments are the first he's made about that issue since the LeBron-to-Los Angeles rumors began to swirl this summer. "Even if we weren't doing OK financially, I'd still be trying to find a way to inspire the youth".

"I salute Colin for being as powerful as he was", he said. "And I hope that some National Football League owner-I wish I owned an National Football League team right now". "I was wondering if it was something I could've did to make him not want to be traded".
