NBA superstar LeBron James posted a video to social media on Saturday calling for national unity while explaining that he called President Donald Trump a ‘bum’ earlier in the day because he was ‘using sports as a platform to divide us.’
‘I think it’s basically at a point where I’m a little frustrated because this guy that we’ve put in charge has tried to divide us once again,’ the Cavaliers star said.
‘Obviously we all know what happened with Charlottesville and the divide that caused.
‘It has even hit more home for me now because he is now using sports as the platform to try to divide us.
‘We all know how much sports brings us together, how much passion it has, how much we love and care, the friendships and everything it creates.

‘For him to try and use this platform to divide us even more is not something I can stand for and it’s not something I can be quiet about.’
