On Saturday morning, Donald Trump started of his routine Twitter bashing with a shot at Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors who refused to join his team during their upcoming trip to the White House. After Trump's retaliation, LeBron James labeled the president as a "bum" on Twitter, before elaborating further in a video message.

LeBron on Trump

During NBA Media Day on Friday, former league MVP Steph Curry was asked if he was planning on going to the White House with his team in February to celebrate the Golden State Warriors' 2016 championship.

"I don't want to go," Curry said, before explaining that he didn't feel it was right considering the current troubles facing the country, and Donald Trump's stance on the issues at hand. In a tweet on Saturday morning, Trump officially withdrew his invitation to Curry, before the team visit was also erased from the calendar. One man who came to the defense of Warriors' star was his NBA rival LeBron James, who went on to call Trump a "bum," while directing a message at the president, "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" Just hours later in a September 23 video message on Twitter, James didn't hold back his opinion of the billionaire real estate mogul.

In a video lasting just over two minutes, LeBron James expanded on his feelings about the aforementioned drama surrounding Donald Trump and the NBA.

"We all know how much sports brings us together," James stated. "For him (Trump) to try to use this platform to divide us even more is not something I can stand for and not something I can be quiet about," James continued. The basketball mega star cited the recent white nationalist rally in Virginia as an area of concern, especially due to the president's controversial response where he appears to put equal blame on the white nationalists and counter-protesters for the violence that took place.

Curry speaks

In addition to LeBron James, Steph Curry decided to break his silence regarding the verbal attack from Donald Trump. "It’s surreal, to be honest,” Curry admitted, telling reporters after a weekend team practice. "I don’t know why he feels the need to target certain individuals, rather than others," the former MVP said.

Not stopping there, Steph Curry went a bit deeper, ripping into Donald Trump for how he has conducted himself as commander in chief. "I have an idea of why, but it’s kind of beneath a leader of a country to go that route," Curry said, while adding, "That’s not what leaders do." As the former host of "The Apprentice" adds big name sports stars to his list of enemies, his approval rating has dropped to just 35 percent in the most recent round of polling.
