- Indiana coach takes aim at Donald Trump’s famous slogan
- Pacers will resume season at end of July in Orlando
Indiana Pacers coach Nate McMillan has said he finds Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan insulting during an interview dealing with race in America.
“To me, it was a trigger word,” McMillan, who is black, told the Indianapolis Star. “Make America ‘great’ … again? What part are you talking about trying to bring America back to? When was it great? The ‘again’ part was pretty much what he has done, which is pit white against black. [Trump] has fueled this thing, the way he has led. Why not just make America great? It’s never been great for us. I want to know what period of time he’s talking about.”
