“I don’t know. That’s something I would cross.”
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers celebrated their NBA championship at the White House with Barack and Michelle Obama earlier this week, and it *could* be the last time they visit, even if they repeat this season.
Of course, it would be President-elect Donald Trump's White House which is why LeBron said he isn't sure if he'd accept an invitation should he be put in that situation after the season.
LBJ told the Akron Beacon-Journal:
“I don’t know. That’s something I would cross,” James said Friday. “We’ll have to cross that road, I guess. We’ll see. I would love to have to cross that road.”
All things considered, LeBron said he's willing to at least give Donald Trump a chance.
“He’s our president. And no matter if you agree with it or disagree with it, he’s the guy and we all have to figure out a way that we can make America as great as it can be,” James said. “We all have to do our part. Our nation has never been built on one guy, anyway. It’s been built on multiple guys, multiple people in power, multiple people having a dream and making it become a reality by giving back to the community, giving back to the youth, doing so many great things."
“Obviously we always had a guy that has the No. 1 position of power, and that’s the President of the United States, but it’s never been built on one guy. So we all have to figure out a way that we can better our country because we all know that and we all feel it. This is the best country in the world, so we all have to do our part. It’s not about him at all. Especially not for me and what I do.”
