Trump aims tweet at LeBron James, questions his intelligence

Jordan said: "I support LeBron James". "He's doing an fantastic job for his community".

Although James has always been a Trump critic, calling the president "U bum" in a 2017 tweet, the Friday night tweet was Mr Trump's first attack on the player, who has just opened up a school for underprivileged children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

President Donald Trump attacked Ohio's favorite son, LeBron James, on Friday night, questioning his intelligence just a day before he's set to hold a rally in the state.

If anyone was wondering where Donald Trump might land on the LeBron vs. Jordan debate, a tweet of his from Friday night might clear it up.

After Trump criticized Lemon's and James' intelligence, Lemon, CNN, and other National Basketball Association players took to Twitter to defend James.

His comment sparked huge reaction from James' supporters - but the most surprising response came from First Lady Melania Trump.

James has consistently spoken out against the president. At the end of the interview, Lemon asked if James, "What would you say to the president if he were sitting right here?" He added a closer that was perhaps meant to be a biting comparison - "I like Mike!"


Trump's tweet also contradicted past statements from the president, in which he has repeatedly said he no longer watches CNN, which he has decried as "Fake News".

He was responding to remarks by then-Cavs star James as well as Curry, who both said they would not attend a White House reception.

James explained why he called Trump a "bum" on his Twitter account. I mean, just this week he's taken a swipe at the QUEEN, claiming she was late and kept him waiting when he met her in England recently.

President Donald Trump made no mention of LeBron during a rally in OH over the weekend, but it's safe to say that he's big mad.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver, who was at the league's NBA Africa Game on Saturday in Johannesburg, South Africa, commended James for his work on and off the court.

In choosing her official first lady platform, Trump picked something that involved teaching kindness on social media, something her husband clearly does not practice, even though she continues to face widespread criticism for that decision amid cries of hypocrisy.

Utah Jazz star guard and noted good guy Donovan Mitchell thought Trump's tweet was a sign of insecurity.
