LeBron James Just Dunked On Donald Trump Again

"He doesn't understand the power that he has to lead... this lovely country", James said.

"I will lend my voice, my passion and my money to the youth, to my inner city and those outside my inner city", he said.

NBA All-Star LeBron James spoke to the press on Monday following Sunday's protests around the NFL, in which many players took a knee during the national anthem in support of equality.

Ravens and Jaguars defy President Trump at Wembley How did James respond?

Gilbert's company, Quicken Loans, contributed $750,000 to Trump's inauguration.

Less than a year into office, the Trump administration has been replete with scandals, sound bites, name calling and apparent solidarity with emboldened racists and Nazis.

James said he doesn't regret calling Trump "a bum" on Twitter.

"It hasn't changed", James said, when asked. "I hope that we can bring him here". Not that particular state, but in the state of the world. What I say, I think it should hit home for a lot of people.

James added he wanted to do his best to make a difference for those who were struggling.

"I've talked to D-Wade throughout the whole summer, and I probably will reach out to him as well, but it's really not up to me. But that doesn't mean that it was the right choice". Matter of fact it's not like you invited me, it's like I'm not going to be able to make it. Jane Timken, chair of the Ohio Republican Party, did not return a voicemail seeking comment.

Several other National Basketball Association players reacted to Trump rescinding the Warriors' invitation to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, including LeBron James who tweeted, "U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!"

James called Trump a "bum" and pointed out that Curry already made it clear he didn't want to go, so there was no invitation to withdraw.

The name-calling didn't end there: Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal called Trump "a clown" and Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan said the president is a "so-called leader".

"If you voted for him or not, you may have made a mistake, and that's okay". No matter the shape, size, weight, ethnicity, religion or whatever - people find teams, players and colours because of sport.

But if it does indeed happen, there's a good chance we'll never know it. "It's the land of the free". "It would be great to have Dwayne Wade to join us [with the Cavs], and I'd love to have him with us".

"Because the people run this country". Curry, along with James are one of countless sports athletes both in America and beyond who are not fans of Trump, his ideals, or what he is trying to implement.

Other coaches and players were asked about the protests on Monday.?
