Sports NFL Donald Trump LeBron James has never been shy from expressing his political opinion and did not mince his words when asked about President Donald Trump’s involvement in sports. On Monday, the three-time NBA champion opened his I Promise School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, before then discussing sports and politics in a wide-ranging interview with CNN anchor Don Lemon. “We are in a position right now in America […] where this race thing has taken over,” James said. “Because I believe our president is kind of trying to divide us. What I've noticed over the past few months [is] he's kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to."

opinion Bill Pascrell and Ted Lieu Opinion contributors Published 7:15 p.m. UTC Jun 21, 2018 Pardons are all the talk these days. America hasn’t seen this frequency of pardon discussion since the year President Richard Nixon resigned. President Donald Trump has issued multiple surprise pardons and commutations since taking office. Those who have received clemency have very little in common other than their proximity to celebrity, support of Trump or some combination of the two. Additionally, Trump has also mused publicly about pardoning contestants of The Apprentice, privately about pardoning his aides and family, and he insists that he can even pardon himself. Saying this is unprecedented is a generous way to describe his use of pardons. While many of Trump’s actions have chipped away at the prestige of his office, his view of pardons is particularly disturbing. It appears the president is setting the groundwork to undermine our country’s laws to … [Read more...] about If Donald Trump thwarts Russia investigation with pardons, we might never recover: Pascrell & Lieu
opinion Jason Sattler Opinion columnist Published 7:15 p.m. UTC Jun 14, 2018 Donald Trump’s immigration policies are having lethal consequences. Marco Antonio Muñoz, a Honduran man seeking asylum in Texas, committed suicide in his padded cell after Border Patrol agents separated him from his wife and 3-year-old son. Manuel Antonio Cano Pacheco was murdered in Zacatecas, Mexico, where he was deported after he was convicted of two misdemeanors and lost his protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. These are two tragedies arising from the Trump administration’s insistence on making America’s already cruel immigration policies even more intolerable by cracking down on refugees and people brought to this country as kids. How many more are there? Who knows? No one knows how many noncriminals will die in countries they’ve never known as their deportations skyrocket. We have no possible way to account … [Read more...] about Donald Trump is using his power and our government to dehumanize people who aren’t white
U.S. Syria Donald Trump chemical weapons On April 14, President Donald Trump gave the word for the U.S. to join with the British and French militaries in launching precision missiles against three suspected chemical weapons facilities in Syria. Tactically, the mission was a total success: All three targets were utterly annihilated. Strategically, however, the mission was almost without meaning and contributed nothing to American security or prosperity. The most effective thing the president could do now would be to immediately withdraw the 2,000 American troops in Syria. Shortly after Trump’s inauguration, he said he was going to make good on a campaign promise to destroy the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), and substantially increased the number of U.S. combat troops, trainers, and air controllers in Syria. Those troops were intended to support the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in their drive to liberate ISIS’ self-proclaimed capital of Raqqa.
