Basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neal said in an interview that Donald Trump won the election “fair and square,” and instead of calling for recounts, voters should give the president-elect a chance.
“We have a process that’s been going on forever,” and whoever wins, you just hope he does what he says he’s going to do. You know, candidate Trump promised a lot of people a lot of things. And now that he’s president-elect, you just hope that he can make the world a better place. He won fair and square. We have to give him a chance. There’s no need talking about recounts and this and that.”
“I’m 45 years old and the world is more divided now than it’s ever been,” O’Neal said on TNT. “There’s a lot of stuff going on. It’s my hope and prayer that him as a leader of the free world brings people closer together.
