LeBron James Blasts Donald Trump's Muslim Ban
Huffington Post - 20 days
LeBron James has made no secret of his distaste for President Donald Trump: He endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in October and mocked Trump in comments about NBA All-Star voting last month.
Now, the NBA’s biggest superstar is speaking out against the executive order Trump signed to ban refugees and stop immigrants from seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the United States.
“Diversity is what makes this country so great,” James said while accepting the NAACP’s Jackie Robinson Sports Award this month, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I stand with the many, many Americans who believe this does not represent what the United States is all about.”
“I am not in favor of this policy or any policy that divides and excludes people,” James said. “I stand with the many, many Americans who believe this does not represent what the United States is all about. And we should continue to speak out about it.”
