LeBron James says Donald Trump's victory is a "challenging obstacle" for women and minorities ... but he promises to love them "even if whos [sic] now in office doesn't."
The NBA superstar was a big Hillary Clinton supporter -- and went public with his feelings on social media after her loss ... saying he's fighting the urge to lash out.
"Yes we all wanna lace up the boots, put on the hard hats and strike but that's not the answer. Love, genuine LOVE and FAITH will be the only thing that can get us through this."
He continued, "Minorities and Women in all please know that this isn't the end, it's just a very challenging obstacle that we will overcome!!"
"Even if whos now in office doesn't, Know that I LOVE YOU'LL!!!"
