Dwyane Wade Says Donald Trump Used His Cousin’s Death For Political Gain (Video)
Longtime Miami Heat & current Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade did not appreciate Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump using his cousin’s death as a ploy for political gain.
Last week, Nykea Aldridge was gunned down on Chicago’s South Side as she was pushing a stroller down the street. Reports from local police suggest she wasn’t even the intended target.
Donald Trump, who has been trying to get ‘black votes’ for the past two weeks as the election gets closer, used that tragic event and took to Twitter to try and get African American people on his side. But everybody saw his true intentions and he failed miserably.
Dwyane Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!

While speaking with ABCNews, Dwyane Wade stated he was conflicted when the tweet was brought to his attention, because it made National news on how bad the crime is in Chicago, but Trump still used it to get votes.
