LeBron James is no big fan of President Donald Trump, and he made that very clear on Thursday night during the final Presidential Debate.

The Los Angeles Lakers star took a screenshot of President Trump and Joe Biden, and then superimposed a clown head on the President’s body. He then wrote “Please Vote” and tagged his organization, “@morethanavote.”

Needless to say, people had some reactions.

This past week, James opened up about what this coming election meant to him.

“What is most important to you come Election Day?” Astead W. Herndon of the NY Times asked him. “Is it greater participation from Black voters? Is it the removal of President Trump, who I know you’ve had some back-and-forth with?”

“I define success by our people going out and voting,” he replied. “You know, there’s so many stats out there, you can see it every time. Who didn’t vote? What counties didn’t vote? What communities didn’t vote? And a lot of that has had to do with our Black people. So, hopefully, we can get them out and educated and let them understand how important this moment is.

“I don’t go back and forth with anybody. 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.”

When asked if he was more focused on getting people out to vote than supporting any particular candidate, James seemed to acknowledge that this was in fact the case.

“Last election cycle, you campaigned for Hillary Clinton in Ohio,” Herndon said. “This time, you’ve focused more on issues rather than an individual candidate. Can you explain to me the thinking behind that shift?”

“I don’t want to say it’s a shift,” he replied.

“It’s just what needed to be done at this point in time. We’ve been talking about voter suppression, we’ve been talking about police brutality, systemic racism. We’ve had so many things going on, and voter suppression in our communities happens to be at the forefront. So that’s something we wanted to educate our people on.”

The 2020 election is set to take place on Tuesday, Nov. 3. One way or the other, votes will be cast by that point and all the talk about who to support will stop.

From there, it will take a certain amount of time for a winner to be determined. But once one is, everyone will be able to move on with their lives and hopefully all this incessant election chatter can end once and for all.
