Dwyane Wade Mourns Murder of Cousin, Donald Trump Uses It for Campaign Moment

Dwyane Wade is currently mourning the murder of his cousin and Donald Trump used the tragedy as a campaign moment on Twitter.

The 34-year-old basketball star tweeted on Friday night (August 26) that his cousin was killed and it was revealed that she was shot dead while pushing her child in a stroller through a park in Chicago.

“My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough,” Dwyane tweeted.

Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, tweeted about the tragedy and misspelled Wade‘s first name in the process.

Dwayne Wade‘s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!” he wrote.

UPDATE: The original tweet was deleted and replaced with one correctly spelling Dwyane‘s name:

    This effer will get 0% of the black vote. He’s arrogant enough to think he can use black people and their tragedies for his political purposes.
