US President Donald Trump described Kobe as one of the “truly great basketball players of all time”
He further sent his warmest condolences to the deceased’s wife Vanessa and the wonderful Bryant family.
“Kobe Bryant, despite being one of the truly great basketball players of all time, was just getting started in life,” wrote Trump.
“He loved his family so much and had such strong passion for the future. The loss of his beautiful daughter, Gianna, makes this moment even more devastating. Melania and I send our warmest condolences to Vanessa and the wonderful Bryant family. May God be with you all!”
Kobe was a legend on the court and just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day.

One of the greatest basketball players of all time, Kobe had a grace and athleticism unmatched in the NBA.
My prayers are with his family and friends, and all Lakers fans. https://t.co/QYT6j4okVi

The first time I met @kobebryant was 11 days before losing my eyesight when I was 12 years old. He gave me a very special gift that I still have. It was a gracious moment that went a long way. Thank you Kobe for making me smile when all I wanted to do was cry! #RIPMamba 💜💛💔 pic.twitter.com/vxKERAjFQI
