Michael Jordan Responds to Donald Trump's LeBron James Tweet: 'I Support LJ'

"He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump tweeted on Friday while watching the rebroadcast of the interview.

Michael Jordan is speaking out in support of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James after President Donald Trump insulted his intelligence.

A number of athletes jumped in to defend James.

James has been a vocal critic of Trump in the past, and though Trump has sung James' praises many times, he took a completely different tone Friday. But the attack on James, who was being interviewed by another black man, to some resembled a racial dog whistle.

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

And in an interview with CNN this week, James told Lemon that Trump was "trying to divide our sport, but at the end of the day, sport is the reason why we all come together". The children will even receive free food, uniforms, and a bike.

Donald Trump, 72, may be caught in a feud with National Basketball Association star LeBron James, 33, but his wife Melania Trump, 48, is not getting involved!

Lemon tweeted a response Saturday.

Lemon responded to the president, invoking both the administration's forced-family-separations policy and Mrs. Trump's social media etiquette campaign. The CNN anchor asked rhetorically, "Who's the real dummy?"

Retired NBA player Michal Jordan, who the American Chief Executive Donald Trump mentioned in the tweet – ending with “I like Mike!” – Jordan. Trump rescinded the invite after Warriors point guard Stephen Curry said he would not go. "Because I know that sport was the first time I ever was around someone white".

The I Promise School is the culmination of almost a decade of work by James' foundation, with its focus on educating children from challenging situations or backgrounds. - Jordan also weighed in.

Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe accused Trump of racism, saying his tweet was "beneath the dignity of a sitting POTUS".

James tweeted Saturday about the I Promise school, saying "Love you guys".

"He's dividing us", James said.

That comment may have caused Trump to change his mind.
