THIS is Why Trump was Right to Attack Lebron James

Michael Jordan says 'I support' LeBron James after Trump attack

CNN anchor Don Lemon revealed that President Donald Trump once accused him of being racist, after a contentious interview over Trump's conspiracy theory that former President Obama was born in Kenya. Even NBA icon Michael Jordan - known for his reluctance to comment on political and societal matters in his prime - weighed in, after Trump closed his tweet saying "I like Mike!"

His comment sparked huge reaction from James' supporters - but the most surprising came from First Lady Melania Trump, whose communications director issued a statement that appeared to break ranks with the president. "He's doing an incredible job for his community", Jordan said in a statement to The Associated Press through his representative via text Saturday.

While President Trump's tweets hint that he wouldn't be opposed to fighting LeBron James at Wrestlemania, his wife isn't very thrilled with his latest midnight thoughts.

With James signing for four years with the Lakers, many believed that this might be the final stop for him in his National Basketball Association career.

James, who recently signed with the Lakers, has repeatedly clashed with the President, and on Monday said he would refuse to ever sit face to face with him.

"He knows he has the support of his contemporaries", Rodgers said of James, "in his own sport and in other sports."

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah has pleaded with U.S. President Donald Trump to stop bickering with famous black people on Twitter. An I Promise School for at-risk students opened in Akron, Ohio, last week. "LeBron just pledged millions for a school for underprivileged kids".

"And then once he became President of the United States, and you have to hold his feet to the fire, all of a sudden he doesn't like what I'm doing", Lemon said.

"I know the streets they walk".

Menendez wrote in a tweet Monday that Trump wouldn't have questioned James' intelligence or charity work if he were white. He added that "This president constantly denigrates people of color and women". Asked what he would say to Trump if he were sitting across from him, James replied, "I would never sit across from him".

"So let me get this straight: Flint, Missouri, has dirty water still, but you anxious about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?" he asked the president on Twitter. National Basketball Association player Karl-Anthony Towns wrote: "So let me get this straight: Flint, MI has dirty water still, but you anxious about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?"
