President Donald Trump made headlines Tuesday when he said in a news conference “both sides” were to blame for violence that unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend.
LeBron James, who has never been silent on political or social issues, was one of the first athletes to react to Trump’s most recent comments.
Hate has always existed in America. Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again! Statues has nothing to do with us now!

To defend white supremacists and then slang his shitty ass grape juice pretty much sums the man up

On one hand you had the Nazis who were violent & on the other the allied soldiers were very violent. So it's a draw. Many sides you see.
