Former President Donald Trump faced backlash after he made a joke about basketball player LeBron James -- saying he could get sex reassignment surgery.
Trump made the comments at a "Rally to Protect Our Elections," in Arizona.
"If I were a coach, I wouldn't be talking to too many women as we know women," he said. "I'd be getting some of these people that ... they're 'women.'"
Trump then said: "Somebody said that if LeBron James ever decided to get the operation, how would he be on the court? How would he be?"
"LeBron James, you can have him," Trump continued. "Did you see the basketball ratings that were terrible? They went up after his team was defeated."
Trump did not appreciate LeBron speaking out against social justice and clowned him even when he was president.
"How about basketball? How about LeBron?" Trump said last year.
"I didn't watch one shot — I get bored," the president said. "Back, forth, back, forth. You know why? When they don't respect our country, when they don't respect our flag, nobody wants to watch. Nobody. And the NFL is way down. You got to stand for our flag, you got to really be great to our flag and to our anthem, and if you don't do that, we're not watching."
