LeBron James’ Final Messages For Trump Go Viral

LeBron James’ Final Messages For Trump Go Viral

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and President Donald Trump have been engaged in a lengthy feud for some time. The latter has objected to NBA players mixing social justice commentary into its games, while the former disagrees with President Trump’s politics on a deeply personal level.

On Friday, as it was becoming clear that President Trump would lose the 2020 Presidential Election to former Vice President Joe Biden, James couldn’t help but take a victory lap. Needless to say, the messages immediately went viral.

Along with helping pay $27 million so that felons would be able to vote in this election, James publicly endorsed former Vice President Biden for president some weeks back. The move wasn’t particularly shocking, given the issues he and President Trump repeatedly had.

Their dispute was on full display last week, when President Trump mocked both James and the NBA at one of his rallies. The crowd subsequently started to chant “LeBron James sucks,” which President Trump appeared to revel in.

“How about basketball?” President Trump said. “How about Lebron? I felt badly for LeBron. I felt very badly. Down 71% and that’s for their championship — I didn’t watch one shot. I get bored. … You know why? When they don’t respect our country, when they don’t respect our flag, nobody wants to watch. Nobody!”

A few weeks back, James was asked about his constant back and forths with President Trump.

“I don’t go back and forth with anybody,” he replied. “And I damn sure won’t go back and forth with that guy. “But we want better, we want change in our community. We always talk about, ‘We want change,’ and now we have the opportunity to do that.”

Prior to that, President Trump referred to James as a “hater.”

“He’s a great basketball player, but people don’t want to see a guy that’s that way,” President Trump said. “They don’t want to see that. … He’s a hater.”

At the end of the day, it’s looking like James will ultimately end up winning this particular battle with President Trump.

Does it mark the end of the war, though? Time will tell.
