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.

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.
