Trump’s Twitter War with LeVar Ball Underlines A Much Larger Problem

With all the pressing issues of the day, Donald Trump still finds time to engage in a twitter war with LeVar Ball, father of UCLA basketball player LiAngelo Ball. LiAngelo and some of his teammates had been arrested on suspicion of shoplifting while on tour in China. LeVar Ball expressed skepticism about the level of help Trump gave in assisting the basketball players. One has to ask why the president of the United States has such a thin skin that he must respond to every slight or criticism. Why are most of Trump’s targets people of color?
