Michael Jordan says LeBron James has his 'support' following Trump tweet

Trump mocks Le Bron James in Twitter rant over CNN interview

First Lady Melania Trump showed support for LeBron James' I Promise School in Akron, Ohio hours after President Donald Trump slammed James' intelligence in a Friday night tweet.

"And what I've noticed over the last few months", James said, "he's kind of used sport to kind of divide us".

Many NBA stars took the side of LeBron James after the tweet of U.S. president Donald Trump against the newest Laker and even Michael Jordan defends the current "King" of the NBA.

Donald Trump has taunted National Basketball Association player LeBron James over his intelligence, claiming it "isn't easy" to make him "look smart".

US President Donald Trump has taunted US basketball player Lebron James and suggested that he prefers Michael Jordan.

Trump took to Twitter late Friday night to bash Lemon after his interview on Monday with James, and ended up slandering the celebrity athlete as well.

The $10 million Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson showdown has a date
Golf.com had initially reported last month that the players were in negotiations for a "winner take all" competition. When asked about the latest rumours regarding the match, he said: "We haven't signed anything, nothing's confirmed".

In a tweet, Trump took aim at two of his regular critics, James and cable TV news personality Don Lemon.

"[The first lady's] platform centers around visiting organizations, hospitals and schools, and she would be open to visiting the I Promise School in Akron", Grisham's statement concluded. When Lemon asked James what he would say to Trump if he ever had the chance to sit across from him, James replied, "I would never sit across from him".

Melania Trump isn't on her husband's side in his personal battle with LeBron James. Jordan responded to that, praising James for helping his community.

James first said Mr. Trump is using sports to divide Americans at a press conference in September 2017, when Mr. Trump claimed he had disinvited Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors, although the team had decided not to visit. An unnamed senior White House official told ABC News that Trump wasn't siding with James, but rather siding with children.

It said: "I support LeBron James. A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?" tweeted Lemon, who also added a sarcastic #BeBest, which was a nod to Melania Trump's initiative to encourage children to be their best selves. As that Ian bloke said, it's good to see that the cruel comments have backfired and actually raised the profile of James' good work.
