Steph Curry has talked about his disdain many times for Donald Trump’s presidency and how he wasn’t the biggest fan of the Republican politician.
Those feelings toward him have not wavered with him being out of office right now.
The war of words between Curry and Trump led to the then-president rescinding an invitation for the Warriors to come celebrate their NBA championship at the White House.
In a lengthy interview with Rolling Stone published Monday, Curry dove into the possibility of Trump running for president again in 2024. He said “of course” he is taking “Trump seriously.”
“Most of his rhetoric — before he was president, during his four years, and even now, if he tries to run again — has a tone of divisiveness that doesn’t have a place in our country,” Curry told the magazine. “As serious and loud as the threat is of him or whoever else is running for office, there’s a similar urgency and a loudness that’s necessary on the other side.”
Curry opened up about his activism to Rolling Stone.
“You’re growing and evolving on the same page as these national, politicized conversations, but it doesn’t have to be sides,” he said.
“What I try to do is be real, but also activate conversation that is sometimes uncomfortable,” the NBA All-Star said.
“The current events of the Trump era, I don’t wake up and say, ‘I wanna go at that conversation,’” Curry told the magazine.
“Some of this stuff falls on your doorstep and people want a perspective or comment, and sometimes you cough that up unsolicited.”
Curry also revealed that former President Obama nce scolded him for repeating on a 2018 podcast a conspiracy theory that questioned whether astronauts really landed on the moon.
Curry recalled, “I got an email. It was a pretty stern, direct one from President Obama.”
After telling him that humans did step foot on the moon, Curry said Obama instructed him, “You’ve got to do something about this.”
Curry averaged 25.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per game while shooting 43.7 percent from the field and a career-low 38.0 percent from beyond the arc last season.
