LeBron James: "I'm not going to let" Trump "divide us"

LeBron James, during a press conference today, referred to President Trump as "that guy" dividing the nation. James was commenting on Trump's crusade against the NFL and national anthem protestors.

Other key quotes:

  • "...everyone that had anything or any association with the NFL yesterday was unbelievable. It was solidarity and no, there was no divide. No divide. Even from that guy that continues to try to divide us as people."
  • "I'm not going to let, while I have this platform, to let one individual, no matter the power, no matter the impact that he should have or she should have, ever use sport as a platform to divide us.
  • "...if you voted for him or not, you may have made a mistake, and that's okay. If you voted for him. It's okay. I mean, I've done things for my kid and realized I shouldn't have given my daughter that many skittles."
  • "Not one individual, no matter if it's the president of the United States or if someone in your household can stop your dreams from becoming reality."
