Trump to announce NBA players are being treated differently due to their age, race

President Donald Trump on Monday said NBA players would be treated differently if they were under the age of 25 if they are white, as opposed to Asian-Americans and Hispanics.

“What do you mean by that?

I don’t know,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.””

Are they white, Hispanic, or Asian-American?

Because you know, the NBA is going to be made up of all those categories.

But I think they’re treated differently, if they’re under the 25-year-old age category, because I think it’s going to have an impact.””

I don’t think they are,” Trump continued.

“I think they get treated differently because of their race.

And I think this is going be a very big deal.”

Trump’s comments come a day after the league announced the league would not begin counting the number of African-Americans or Hispanics on its rosters until 2020.

The league said the change would help combat racial inequality, as well as prevent bias against minorities in the sport.
