Author: Deborah Ross / 2023-05-01 09:55:22Former NBA star Enes Kanter Freedom has hinted at a potential run for Congress, as he discussed his plans for making a difference in the country. The basketball player, who is now a human rights activist, indicated that he is having conversations about running in Florida, which he said he likes for its warm weather.
Freedom said he has had discussions with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who urged him to move to the Sunshine State and potentially run for office there. Florida has become a Republican stronghold in recent years, with the state voting overwhelmingly for GOP lawmakers during the 2022 midterms.
As a human rights activist, Freedom has been outspoken about the need to hold China accountable and defend the US against foreign adversaries who threaten national security interests and fundamental values of liberty. He has also criticized the Biden administration for its alleged weakness toward countries like China and Turkey.
Freedom's Fox Nation special, «The Price and Splendor of Freedom,» began streaming on Sunday, and is dedicated to exploring his life and love for America. During his appearance on «Fox & Friends Weekend,» Freedom talked about his appreciation for the country and what it means to him. He has yet to announce any official plans for running for office, but he said that he has been urged by others to do so.
«Everybody has been like, ‘What are you waiting for?’» he said, adding that his supporters argue that his voice is needed to make a difference.
