Shaquille O’Neal Says Trump Won “Fair and Square”

Written by Jose Borbon

NBA Hall of Famer and Florida Police Department reserve Officer Shaquille O’Neal told ITK on Wednesday that Donald Trump won the election fair and square, and that voters should give the president-elect a chance, rather than calling for recounts.

“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. 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,” added O’Neal. “There’s no need talking about recounts and this and that.”

O’Neal, who is currently making a return trip to Capitol Hill with Responsibility.org to raise awareness about battling dangerous driving, was also asked what’s harder; a tough basketball showdown or getting through to lawmakers.

He replied, “I would have to say getting legislation passed in Congress. You have a lot of people up there and you have to try to convince the majority that this is what you think should happen.”

ITK also asked, “So who would be more likely to win in a one-on-one match against you: President Obama or President-elect Trump?”

“Neither,” O’Neal replied instantly.

“They’d both be toast?” ITK exclaimed.

“Barbecue chicken is what I like to call it,” O’Neal said while laughing.
