Don Lemon Takes Jabs At Donald Trump After LeBron James Interview

LeBron James said he believed US President Donald Trump LeBron James said he believed US President Donald Trump"is kind of trying to divide us More

NBA great Michael Jordan - whom Trump said he preferred in signing off his tweet aimed at James - issued a statement through AP in which he praised the four-time NBA MVP. "[LeBron James]. He's doing an incredible job for his community".

In the interview Trump referenced, James talked to Lemon about his recently announced I Promise School, a public elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, created for at-risk children.

One person wrote: "LeBron James has done more good for this country in the last week as a basketball player than Trump has in a year and a half as President of the United States".

Lemon's interview with James was broadcast earlier in the week and rerun on Friday when Trump, who's on vacation at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, caught up with it. In the interview James and Lemon covered an array of topics, including Trump's presidency. Although James has always been a Trump critic, calling the president "U bum" in a 2017 tweet, the tweet was Trump's first attack on the player, who just opened up a school for underprivileged children in his hometown of Akron.

Grisham didn't mention the president's comment in her statement.

A month later, she opted to go solo prior to departing for a trip with her husband. "A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?"

Many, including professional athletes and the Republican governor of OH, were critical of Trump's statements.

Eleven children rescued from New Mexico compound after 'we're starving' note
Amalia, New Mexico, is located in a mountainous region just miles from the Colorado border, and about two hours north of Santa Fe. Everybody was wearing dirty rags for clothing and no one had shoes or any semblance of personal hygiene, he said.


The statement from Stephanie Grisham on Saturday came hours after a late-night tweet from President Donald Trump in which he derided James' intelligence, saying it "wasn't easy" to make the National Basketball Association superstar look smart.

There aren't many people in the world who Donald Trump hasn't slagged off, let's face it. "I support LJ", he said. He later could not resist the urge to slam the president and said Trump was using sports to divide people.

"I support L.J.", Jordan told NBC News through a spokesperson.

James, for his part, in his first comment since the insult, tweeted a celebration of his new school instead of responding directly to Trump.

This isn't the first time that King James has gotten into a war of words with Trump. James said the school prioritizes a holistic experience for students that include sports, which he described as critical for healthy communities. James also said that he'd "never" sit down for a meeting with Trump.

James has not tweeted about Trump's reaction, at least not explicitly.

This weekend's controversy was just the latest in a long-running feud between James and Mr Trump.
