While parading the NBA Trophy around his home state of Maryland, Kevin Durant was quick to join other his NBA colleagues in denouncing U.S. president Donald Trump.
Following the horrific riots in Charlottesville last week, LeBron James led the social media posts in calling out Trump and Durant has followed suit, talking to TMZ Sports saying: “Hell yeah. That’s how it’s supposed to be. We don’t f*ck with him.”
Kevin Durant says he will not visit President Donald Trump at the White House if the NBA champion Golden State Warriors are invited.
“Nah, I won’t do that,” said Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.”
“I don’t agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that,” said Durant, who said it wasn’t an organizational decision. “That’s just me personally, but if I know my guys well enough, they’ll all agree with me.”
“He’s definitely driving it,” Durant said. “I feel ever since he’s got into office, or since he ran for the presidency, our country has been so divided, and it’s not a coincidence. “
