Way back in 2016, LeBron James used his voice to endorse Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump for president, even going as far to join her at a campaign event in Cleveland. It did not work out in their favor four years ago.
Fast forward to 2020 and the Los Angeles Lakers superstar says he will officially join Team Biden and will actively campaign for the V.P. and Kamala Harris to defeat Donald Trump in the presidential election.
“We are at a time where we need change,” LeBron said on VICE TV’s “Cari & Jemele: Stick To Sports.”
“In order for change, it’s all about leadership — and leadership starts at the top.”
It was earlier this month when LeBron tweeted his support for presidential nominee Joe Biden’s choice for his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris.
“Congrats and well deserved Sen. Kamala Harris!! Love to see and support it! Appreciate you JB,” he wrote.
It’s unclear whether he will be campaigning for Biden in California, Ohio or any other state especially in the middle of the Lakers’ playoff push and his pursuit of a fourth ring.
