Don Lemon Takes Jabs At Donald Trump After LeBron James Interview

Don Lemon Takes Jabs At Donald Trump After LeBron James Interview

Jordan has also sided with "rival" James and said through a spokesman: "I support LeBron James. He's doing an wonderful job for his community", Jordan said through a spokeswoman.

Trump tweeted his thoughts Friday (Aug. 3) following CNN's re-airing of Don Lemon's interview with James where he talked about his I Promise School, which helps 240 children with programs dedicated to accelerated learning.

Following the tweet, which came in a week after James opened his I Promise School for at-risk children in Akron, Ohio, Trump was predictably lashed for insinuating that James was unintelligent.

Trump finished the tweet with "I like Mike!" an apparent reference to favoring National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan in a comparison with James as perhaps the best National Basketball Association player ever.

The interview caught Trump's attention, who was apparently watching CNN at 11 p.m. on a Friday night, and launched this missive at the star athlete - which is earning the president harsh rebukes.

While unclear, it is likely Trump's final line is referring to Jordan, who is commonly compared to James as one of the greatest basketball players ever.

Support victims of the Carr Fire with the Carr Fire Relief Fund
Bulldozer operators and their machines build containment lines while battling the River fire in Lakeport, California on July 31. Just a month into the budget year, the state has already spent one quarter of its annual fire budget, at least $130 million.

"I like Mike!" Trump tweeted.

"I can't sit back and say nothing", James said, explaining that sports should be used to unify. In the interview, James reiterated his criticism of the president as racially insensitive.

In June, Trump said that neither the Cleveland Cavaliers - James' previous team - nor the Golden State Warriors would be invited to the White House following the NBA Finals.

However, Mrs Trump's spokeswoman said James was "working to do good things" with a school in his OH hometown. An unnamed senior White House official told ABC News that Trump wasn't siding with James, but rather siding with children.

The four-time NBA MVP, 33, branded the U.S. leader " a bum" after he rescinded an invitation for NBA champions the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House previous year, amid doubts over whether some players - including star man Stephen Curry - would attend.

James has always been critical of Trump. It was the first lady and Trump daughter and top aide Ivanka Trump who urged the president to reverse course on family separations, the president said.
