Former NBA player and close friend of George Floyd, Stephen Jackson is not happy with President Trump.
On Friday afternoon, while speaking on the protests taking place across the country for racial equality Trump mentioned Floyd when he said “hopefully George is looking down right now and saying there’s a great thing happening for our country. It’s a great day for him. It’s a great day for everybody.”

Trump’s speech irked Jackson who went on Instagram and posted video sending a stern warning towards the President to not use his brother’s name anymore during speeches.
“We coming to get you out the White House, Donald Trump.”
“Do not speak on my brother’s name. That damn sure wasn’t a compliment.”

“Hey, this message is for Donald Trump,” “Do not speak on my brother’s name.”
“I’m making you a promise, you will not be in the White House come November. You will not be reelected, I’m telling you now.”
“You see how the whole world stood together? Arm to arm, race to race, everybody standing for love? 50 states, 18 countries. That’s what me and my brother Floyd did. So we coming to get you out the White House.”
Jackson, who grew up with Floyd, has been one of the most vocal supporters of the protest and has vowed to bring justice for Floyd’s family.
