Dwyane Wade Reacts to Trump Politicizing the Death of His Cousin on Twitter

Dwyane Wade has finally reacted to Donald Trump invoking the shooting death of his cousin Nykea Aldridge to declare that he will get lots of black support.

In case you need a refresher, here’s Trump’s tweet:

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked the NBA player for his response, and Wade said he “was kind of conflicted.”

He said, “I was grateful that it started a conversation, but on the other hand, it was just a bad taste in my mouth.”

Wade made it clear he wasn’t pleased that his cousin’s death was “being used as a political game.”
