LeBron James saddened by Charlottesville violence, expresses concern for America's direction

Americans have come to expect from their President unequivocal denunciations of the separatist evil that once violently split this nation apart.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James weighed in on Saturday about the ongoing violence taking place in Charlottesville, Va., taking a shot at President Donald Trump and expressing his sadness in the process.

Trump said he spoke with Virgina Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Saturday and they agreed "the hate and division must stop and must stop right now".

The President's revisionism is of a piece with his move to revamp the federal Countering Violent Extremism Program to focus only on Islamic terrorism, excluding white supremacists, and his close counsel from Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka and other White House advisers promoting a United States less inclusive than the one that thrives today. Check back for more as Trump continues to tweet. Prior to that, he played with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe in February.

A prime example came when Trump played golf with Rory McIlroy ahead of his comeback to the PGA Tour.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren took a similar stance, tweeting to the presidents personal Twitter handle: "How can @realDonaldTrump can show whose side he's on?" Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama.
