Other athletes have voiced their support for President Trump’s opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.

Basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, who won an NBA title for the Miami Heat, spoke at a campaign rally last week for Biden and is among athletes that have endorsed Biden’s candidacy, which includes U.S. Women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe, NBA coach Doc Rivers and Lakers star LeBron James, according to The Hill.
