NBA News Update: LeBron James pokes fun at Donald Trump in his latest tweets
LeBron James is one of the most politically vocal stars in the NBA. A legend on the court, James has done some incredible work off the court as well and has been lauded for it time and again by his peers and the media.
However, LeBron James is not particularly liked by current US President Donald Trump, and this was quite evident in the latter's campaign speech in Cleveland, Ohio, a few days back. Trump had encouraged chants of "LeBron James s***s" during the rally, which showed the distaste he shares for the four-time champion.
Trump represented the Republican party as a presidential candidate in the elections, whose results are edging towards a conclusion now. With the majority of the votes counted, his Democratic counterpart Joe Biden is expected to win the elections.
With Donald Trump expected to lose the elections, LeBron James took to Twitter and posted a few tweets mocking the President. With Joe Biden expected to come to power, it appears as though LeBron James has had the last laugh.
