Donald Trump Torches Lebron James for His ‘Racist’ Statement on Columbus Shooting

Donald Trump has taken down ‘King James’ a few notches after his ignorant statement on the police officer’s shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant on Tuesday.

“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 said.

“His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning,” he added. “He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!”

On Wednesday, LeBron issued a tweet that called for “accountability” for the police officer who shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.

James deleted the tweet and blamed others for calling him out over the post, which threatened a police officer.

He further attempted to explain his misguided tweet:

Multiple body cam videos show that the officer shot Bryant while trying to stab a young girl in pink. You can hear on video that Bryant told her โ€œIโ€™m gonna stab the f**k out of you, b*tch” before she was fatally shot.
