NBA Legend Bill Russell Rips The President About Mail-In Ballots (TWEET)
President Donald Trump recently threatened to withhold federal funding from two states over plans to make absentee ballots available to all voters.
Bill Russell was not feeling that at all.
The former Boston Celtics legend took to Twitter on Thursday and sent a direct message to Donald Trump to remind him that the coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing, saying he doesn’t want to risk his life to vote.
Russell has been highly critical of Trump in the past, even mocking his declaration that he was “number one on Facebook” amid a pandemic as “selfish.”
As far as mail-in ballots go, it is an attempt to minimize the risk of worsening the coronavirus pandemic with in-person elections, but not every politician or person agrees with it.
It was just on Wednesday when trump tweeted threats to withhold funding from Michigan and Nevada.
