Steve Kerr Slam Dunks Republicans For ‘Selling Their Souls’ to ‘Immoral’ Trump
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr on Wednesday night lambasted the GOP for selling its “soul” to President Trump, saying that Democrats needed to make 2020 about unifying the country.
“I believe the vast majority of Americans want a unifying, moral leader,” Kerr said on Twitter before adding: “The GOP has sold its soul to Trump, so the Dems have to get this right in 2020. Make this about jobs and unification. Period.”
Kerr has repeatedly denounced Trump and his administration and has been outspoken about issues such as gun violence for years. His latest remarks came just days after he urged Democrats to denounce the president’s attacks against a group of minority congresswomen as “racist.”
“Come on members of Congress, call out the president for his racist tweets this morning,” Kerr said on Sunday. “Show some leadership. It’s the job you were elected to do.”
Trump sparked an uproar earlier this week by telling four freshman House Democrats to “go back” to the “totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” before speaking out about how the United States should be governed.
Trump also claimed that the congresswomen — Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) – “came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe.” Omar, who came to the U.S. with her family as a refugee from Somalia, is the only one of the four born outside the U.S.
During a rally in Greenville, NC, on Wednesday, Trump went after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), accusing her of being anti-American as the crowd began chanting: “Send her back! Send her back!”
Kerr has consistently weighed in on controversial issues during Trump’s time in the White House. He wore a “Vote For Our Lives” shirt before Game 2 of the NBA Finals following a mass shooting in Virginia.
“The shirt is a reminder that the only way we can get out of this mess is to actually vote, and to vote for people who are going to be willing to create some change in our gun laws in our country,” he said.
