The U.S. is on high alert and a civil war could break out at any moment. Ralph Baker’s Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead predicted this verbatim. Now LeBron James and President Donald Trump have amped things up with a war of words. For every action there appears to be an equal and opposite reaction. Police shoot unarmed black people in the streets, and NFL players like Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid protest by kneeling during the National Anthem. President Trump then demanded that NFL teams make players stand or suspend them. Who didn’t see that coming?
LeBron, Steph Curry, Draymond Green and other pro athletes backed up Kaepernick, and urged others to resist Trump. Most the tete-a-tete has been on social media. Trump And The GE is the perfect forum for conversations about how Trump’s policies impact the economy and the community. By gathering professionals to parse through Trump’s policies, the quarterly speaker series has become one of the top public forums in the country. The next event is Wednesday August 8th in downtown Brooklyn, and will be headlined by Missouri Senator Maria Chapelle-Nadal. Both LeBron and President Trump are expected to attend. Will LeBron and Trump shoot the one-on-one Wednesday? Come see for yourself.
