Lebron James slams Trump over comments on NFL players
United States President, Donald Trump received backlash from Basketball sensation, Lebron James over comments on NFL players and disinvite to the White House.
Trump on Saturday said NFL players who do not stand for national anthem should be fired while rescinding an invite for a White House invitation.
The traditional visit by NBA champion, Golden State Warriors, was reportedly withdrawn because of Stephen Curry’s public opposition to Trump.
Trump tweeted “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!
“If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect.
“Our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”
In reply, three-time NBA champion, Lebron slammed Trump, saying invitation to the White house is no longer a great honour since he was elected into office.
“U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite.
“Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!” Lebron wrote via his twitter page.
