James and Gilbert have had very different reactions to Trump since he became president. After coaches such as Steve Kerr, Gregg Popovich and Stan Van Gundy slammed the voters in the country to electing Trump to presidency, Warriors All-Stars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant flat out refused to travel to the White House for the customary champions' visit. "There's an element of racism that I didn't even realise existed in this country this much". He called the comments unnerving. "And you could hear it in their voice - the racism".

Gilbert said James' tweet prompted his phone to be flooded with racist messages. "I received voicemails after LeBron tweeted that were some of the most vile, disgusting, racist (messages)". "I'm not his friend, though". No, when I woke up and saw what he said about Steph Curry. First of all, it's so amusing because it's like you inviting me to your party, right? "I will lend my voice, I will lend my passion and my money, I will lend my resources to my youth and my inner city and outside of my inner city to let these kids know that there is hope, there's greater walks of life, and not one individual, no matter if it's the president of the United States or if it's someone in your household, can stop your dreams from becoming reality". I didn't even tell LeBron this. "So, my first initial response was, you bum".

Dem Sen. Compares Vegas Shooting To Newtown, Calls For Immediate Gun Control
Whenever there's a mass shooting a debate about gun control follows, and the massacre in Las Vegas is no exception. He was a member of the House in 2012, and the Sandy Hook massacre took place in his district at the time.

James also commended NFL players for protesting after Trump said owners should fire any players who kneel during the national anthem.

Incidentally, Gilbert has been associated with Trump in the past after his firm, Quicken Loans, donated a sum of US$750,000 (AU$958,000) to the president's swearing-in party. However, Gilbert issued a statement this week to clarify his political stance.
