NBA superstar Dwyane Wade has responded for the first time to Donald Trump’s tweets on the murder of his cousin Nykea Aldridge.

The tweet sent liberals and Trump-haters over the edge calling the Republican presidential nominee insensitive, among other things.

But Wade didn’t see it exactly the same way.

The Chicago Bulls shooting guard said he was “conflicted” in his feelings about the tweet.

“I was grateful that it started a conversation, Wade told “Good Morning America. “But on the other hand, it just left a bad taste in my mouth because of what my family is dealing with and what our city of Chicago is dealing with and it looks like it’s being used as political gain.”

Trump later tweeted his condolences to Wade and his family.
