LeBron James Calls Out Donald Trump After Charlottesville Protests Turn Violent (TWEET)

LeBron James Calls Out Donald Trump After Charlottesville Protests Turn Violent (TWEET)

James reacted as he so often does in favor of children.

James actively campaigned for Trump's opponent in last year's presidential election, Hillary Clinton, and was an avid supporter of Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama. Not as wrought by organizers who included ex-Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, who said the event served "to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump".

Democratic minority leader and congresswoman from California Nancy Pelosi tweeted directly at the president writing, "Repeat after me, @realDonaldTrump: white supremacy is an affront to American values".

Trump never uttered a word in his remarks and tweets about the nature of the march, the source of provocation that by Saturday's end had also left two police officers dead in a helicopter crash. "Lets come together as one!" Prior to that, he played with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe in February. Then during the ESPYS, James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony called for social change in a powerful, heartfelt speech. The best part is LeBron refusing to call Trump by name.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious disposition of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides", Trump said at a bill signing ceremony in Bedminster, NJ, where he is on a working vacation at his golf club.
