The LeBron James/Ohio police officer saga continues into another day. This time former President Donald Trump enters the story after he released a statement on Thursday condemning the activist basketball player’s incendiary tweet about said officer.

“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA,” Trump said, according to the New York Post.

James targeted the Columbus, Ohio police officer on Wednesday after he did his job and saved a girl from being stabbed during an altercation this past Tuesday.

Here’s a screenshot of James’ now-deleted tweet:


Trump then spoke of James’ “RACIST rants” and slammed them by using more than just one adjective.

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

Hours after deleting the tweet above, James posted an explanation as to why he deleted the tweet along with a doubling-down of his sentiment towards police in general.
