Steve Kerr has simply had enough of President Donald Trump.
President Donald Trump has upset numerous people throughout his run as President. Of course, he is running for re-election this year and we're sure the campaign is going to be a bloodbath. Following the death of George Floyd, Trump's been at the top of people's minds as many seek to have him removed from office. One of the prominent NBA voices who have been firmly against Trump is none other than Steve Kerr who is the head coach of the Golden State Warriors.
In a recent report from Logan Murdock of NBC Sports, Kerr broke down Trump's election strategy and noted that he is simply trying to divide all of us. Kerr seems to be fed up of this tactic and he is letting it all be known in a powerful way.

“Trump is drawing the battle lines for the election,” Kerr said. “He’s now just paving the way for, ‘I’m the law and order president, and you’ve got to vote for me unless you want the chaos to ensue.’ Which is ironic because chaos has ensued under his own administration. But clearly, this is the beginning of what’s going to be a chaotic campaign. Trump, as he’s been doing for not only his presidency, but for much of his adult life, he’s just trying to divide people and stir up the pot. And as I said, he’s drawing the lines and trying to bring his supporters to the side.”
Kerr isn't the first person in the NBA to speak up against Trump and he most definitely won't be the last. Needless to say, it's important for those with platforms to speak up right now.
