LeBron James has always been outspoken when it comes to social issues. Yesterday, was a another example. LeBron opened his I Promise school yesterday for 240 at-risk students. The best player in the NBA today created the school as an extension of the LeBron James Family Foundation to give kids opportunities to thrive despite difficult life situations. He has also promised to pay for these kids college tuition to the University of Akron.

LeBron spoke with the media at the school for the big day yesterday. LeBron did an exclusive interview with CNNs Don Lemon. They spoke about the school, being black in America, and Donald Trump. In this interview, LeBron believes Donald Trump dividing the country through sports.

LeBron is referencing to the National Football League. When Colin Kaepernick took a knee for police brutality and injustices in America. Donald Trump changed the narrative to Colin Kaepernick disrespecting the American flag and our troops. When Kaepernick first started protesting. He was sitting down during the national anthem. He took a knee because a former soldier Nate Boyer told him it would be more respectful to our troops.

The three-time NBA champion was also asked whether he’d sit down with Trump, who James once called a “bum” for disinviting Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry from the White House.

“I would never sit across from him. I’d sit across from Barack though,” he replied.
