LeBron James slams Trump in the wake of Charlottesville

In an effort to always use his platform for positive change, Cavaliers star LeBron James took to Twitter to react to an incident in Charlottesville, Virgina that left one dead and 19 more injured. Expressing his frustration at this weekend's monstrosity, James made a passing reference to Drumpf's "Make America Great Again" slogan, appearing to punctuate it with a sense of ironic blasé.

One 32-year-old woman died and at least 19 more were injured after a auto targeted and barreled into a crowd of protesters opposing a racist rally led by white supremacists in Charlottesville on Saturday.

White nationalist, white supremacist and alt-right groups were initially scheduled to gather in Charlottesville's Emancipation Park Saturday to protest the city's decision to remove a Confederate statue there.

Romelu Lukaku backed to succeed at Manchester United
He doesn't need time to adapt, he's not a young guy who came from another country, he's not somebody that needs to learn the Premier League.

The King has spoken with displeasure about the violence and white terrorism that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.
