It seems that politics is no longer an important subject at Donald Trump’s rallies…
And he has most certainly never been afraid to call out President Donald Trump.
And it seems that Trump’s supporters have been loyally backing the president and his hatred for James.
The president decided to target James and his crowd absolutely lapped it up.
The thirty-five-year-old is widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all-time through his sensational career with the Lakers.
James is well immersed in the world of education and getting kids on the right track – using his influence for good.
And he’s certainly not all talk…
The star has been involved with several programs and schemes, including funding the “Wheels for Education” program, which provides kids with school supplies, access to computers, and a bike as part of a system designed to keep kids motivated to complete their studies and reach their full potential grades-wise.
The NBA legend opened his own public school – The I Promise School.
The public school, supported by the LeBron James Family Foundation, opened its doors in 2018 after the star teamed up with Akron Public Schools to make the project a reality.
Located in James’ hometown Akron, Ohio, the school houses 240 at-risk third and fourth-grade students.
As well as services designed to help both children and parents who are struggling – including stress management and an on-site food bank.
This is something extremely close to James’ heart after he admitted that having a bike gave him the freedom to explore and escape some of the more dangerous parts of the neighbourhood while growing up.
“We want to create an environment of family where you want to always be around your family,” he said, per the BBC. “No matter the good and the bad, you always want to be around that support system.”
“School didn’t mean anything to me,” he said. “There were just a lot of empty days, empty nights and just kind of a no-future thought process.”
“It was mentally challenging. No kid at eight, nine should have that stress… so I know exactly what a lot of these kids are going through.”
And he hopes that his school will provide a second chance for kids who are struggling at home or falling behind in their education.
This just goes to show how the NBA star has always been a man of the people…
And, throughout years of major success, he has always remained grounded and stayed true to himself… all while gaining a lot of fans.
And it’s none other than the current President of the United States, Donald Trump.
In a fiery tweet, the president said:
“The NBA has become so political that nobody cares about it anymore. I don’t even know who’s playing in the Finals.”
“Because, again, I’ve done so much for the Black community and people don’t wanna see that and he’s a great basketball player but people don’t wanna see a guy that way. They don’t want to see that. We have enough difficulty during the week, you don’t wanna sit down watching a basketball game and then watch somebody that hates your guts, okay, He’s a hater.”
Or Trump’s government! And just weeks ago, he posted a controversial tweet about Mike Pence and The Fly, where he compared Pence to literal excrement.
And obviously, this has touched a nerve with the president going by his most recent rally.
He was talking about how NBA ratings “sucked” this year and blamed the bad numbers on the social activism from LeBron James.
“How about basketball? How about LeBron? I felt badly for LeBron… I felt very badly. Down seventy-one percent and that’s for their championship. I didn’t want to watch one shot.”
And when the president tried to change the subject to the NFL, the crowd erupted into a shocking “LeBron James sucks” chant.
People, in general, weren’t impressed after footage from the rally was uploaded online.
