US President Donald Trump called the NBA a “political organization” and said he did not know much “about the protests” that stopped the competition on Wednesday, and that demand changes in the country’s policies for racial justice.

“I don’t know much about the protests of the NBA. I know that the hearings have been very bad because I think that people are getting tired of the NBA, but I do not know much about the protests,” he said Thursday at a press conference.
