The American President Donald Trump has referred to basketball professionals in the NBA as a stupid and evil. The 74-Year-old said Tuesday in an Interview with "Fox Sports Radio". He was responding to the criticism from the League to his statements about the Anti-racism protests and the knees during the anthem, he wants to have but didn't notice. He was not surprised, because "some are very evil, very very evil, and frankly, very stupid."
Trump claimed, once again, the ratings of the strongest Basketball League in the world, collapsed as a result of the protests, and the NBA put "in big trouble". According to the latest survey of the "Sports Media Watch" were the rates at the end of last week, about four percent below the usual average for the country transferred to NBA games. Considering only the games in Prime time in the evening, the rates are, therefore, eleven percent above the average of the Corona break.
Trump also criticized Major League Baseball for their actions, not praised, but the NHL, that the players knelt there. "They do this to my understanding is very good," he said. In fact, it was in the hockey League players went on to play the anthem on a knee – even if not in the vast majority, as in the NBA.Updated Date: 11 August 2020, 12:20
