Dwyane Wade Addresses Donald Trump’s Tweet


Last week Donald Trump, the Republican Presidential candidate, made a desperate attempt to exploit NBA star Dwyane Wade’s cousin Nykea Aldridge’s tragic death. Wade’s cousin was gunned down on the streets of Chicago while pushing her child in a baby carriage

Dwyane Wade addressed Trump’s tweet to ABC News saying, “I was conflicted [about Trump’s Tweet]. On one end your cousin’s death is used as a ploy for political gain.”

“On the other end, it’s a national story. It goes back to that for me. I want eyes on this city. I want us to be able to do more together. The only way we can do more together is if more people know what’s going on.”

“I was grateful that it started a conversation but on the other hand it left a bad taste in my mouth.”
