LeBron James wrote that Donald Trump has made hate “fashionable again” following the U.S. president’s stunning press conference Tuesday afternoon at Trump Tower.
Hate has always existed in America. Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again! Statues has nothing to do with us now!

Trump, once again, blamed “both sides” for the deadly violence Saturday in Charlottesville.
Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant were also among those who ripped Trump for giving cover to white supremacists.
To defend white supremacists and then slang his shitty ass grape juice pretty much sums the man up

LeBron James spoke out Tuesday against President Donald Trump’s remarks about last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Va.
James wrote in a tweet, “Hate has always existed in America. Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again! Statues has nothing to do with us now!”
The president stated Tuesday in a press conference that “there is blame on both sides” after protests Saturday in Charlottesville turned violent with a mix of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other far-right extremists attempting to “defend” a Civil War statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that the city wants to remove.
