Trump Catches Heat For Tweet Regarding Wade's Cousin

Donald Trump is getting heat for a tweet he sent about the cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade.

The Republican presidential nominee is accused of politicizing the death of Nykea Aldridge, who was an innocent bystander in a shooting on Chicago's South Side on Friday. Trump tweeted, "Dwyane 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 later tweeted condolences to Wade and his family.

Many have condemned Trump's tweet, saying he leveraged the high-profile death for votes.
