Trump Slams ‘Divisive, Nasty, Insulting’ LeBron James Over Cop-Hating Tweet

'He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!'...

Former president Donald Trump slammed NBA star LeBron James for being “divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning,” after James tweeted a picture of the Ohio officer who shot a teenage girl while she was trying to stab someone.

“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA, which has just recorded the lowest television RATINGS, by far, in the long and distinguished history of the League,” Trump wrote in a statement released by his office. 

“His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning. He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!” he continued.

James posted a tweet on Wednesday targeting the Columbus, Ohio police officer who shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant as she was lunging towards another girl with a knife.

“YOU’RE NEXT!,” the tweet read.

James deleted the tweet after it drew wide condemnation.

However, he refused to apologize for the tweet and said he took it down “because it’s being used to create more hate.”

Body camera footage shows the Columbus officer approaching an altercation that involved Bryant.

She then began to lunge towards another girl with a knife in her outstretched hand.

The officer fired four shots, stopping her.

Additional footage showed Bryant screaming, “I’m gonna f—ing stab you, b—h!” as she moved towards the girl.
