LeBron James Calls Donald Trump "The So-Called President Of The US"

17 August 2017

It's not about people that you just don't feel like want to give the best energy and effort to you.

Cleveland Cavaliers star James, also known for his political activism, on Tuesday stepped up his own attacks on Trump, who has been criticized for his response to the recent violence in Charlottesville. But at a press conference on Tuesday, Trump backpedaled and once again blamed "many sides" including the "alt-left" and said there were "very fine people on both sides". James noted the need for a greater sense of love and community, emphasizing the power of small personal actions rather than "the so-called president".

On Saturday, the day after white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Trump was harshly criticized for denouncing hatred and bigotry "on many sides". It's about us. It's about us looking in the mirror.

James said on Twitter: "Hate has always existed in America". The LeBron James Family Foundation has made a difference within the local public school system, and Savannah started I PROMISE in 2012 - an organization to procure prom dresses for those without financial means.

Among those letting the world know how little they thought of the president's words were some National Basketball Association luminaries, including LeBron James and Steve Nash. "It's hard for me to go on the road for two and half weeks and then come home and tell my kids, "Look, this is how it should be done" when she's been home every day". "Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again!". James has also been critical of Trump in particular, saying he was unsure whether he'd visit the White House while Trump is president.

Violence flared in the United States city after white supremacists joined protests against the proposed removal of a statue of Confederate Civil War General Robert E. Lee.
