Trump Proves Athletes’ Point

Sep 14, 2020

After the protests by professional athletes, Donald Trump, of course, had to give his two cents worth of opinion and he attacked the NBA basketball players for refusing to play. Jared Kushner, who is Trump’s “expert on everything” adviser/son-in-law, ridiculed the NBA players for their protest.

The funny thing is, Trump and Kushner never mentioned the baseball players, hockey players, soccer players or tennis players who were protesting, the majority of whom are white. They only attacked the NBA players, who are mostly black. It seems like Trump and Kushner proved the players’ point about racism in this country, which goes all the way to the top.
