Los Angeles Laker LeBron James spoke recently with CNN’s Don Lemon about his new school in Akron.
While his talks he stated he found President Trump to be using “sport to divide” races.
“We’re in a position right now in America where this whole race thing is taking over. One, because I believe our president is trying to divide us,” James said. “He’s dividing us, and what I’ve noticed over the last few months is that he’s kind of used sport to kind of divide us. That’s something that I can’t relate to because I know that sport was the first time I ever was around someone white. I got an opportunity to see them and learn about them, and they got an opportunity to learn about me, and we became very good friends. I was like this is all because of sports. And sports has never been something that divided people. It’s always been something that brings someone together.”
“I would never sit across from him,” James added.
