President Donald Trump rips LeBron James in late-night tweet

US President Donald Trump hits back at Le Bron James over CNN interview

LeBron said the president has "used sports to divide us".

"He's doing an unbelievable job for his community", Jordan, now owner of the National Basketball Association's Charlotte Hornets, told NBC News through a spokesperson.

Trump tweeted his thoughts Friday (Aug. 3) following CNN's re-airing of Don Lemon's interview with James where he talked about his I Promise School, which helps 240 children with programs dedicated to accelerated learning.

Lemon interviewed James earlier this week about the former Cleveland Cavaliers star's new "I Promise" school for at-risk children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

LeBron James was interviewed by CNN's Don Lemon on Monday, and that interview re-aired Friday night, per CNN.

Ahmadinejad told Trump he should "love all" instead of comparing basketball greats James and Michael Jordan.

Saturday morning, James tweeted pictures of students from his school.

First lady Melania Trump stepped away from her husband's criticism of National Basketball Association star LeBron James to compliment his work on behalf of children and even offer to visit his school for at-risk children. LeBron publicly criticized Donald back in September 2017 when he called him a "bum" in a tweet for cancelling his invitation to the Golden State Warriors to celebrate their championship win at the White House. As that Ian bloke said, it's good to see that the cruel comments have backfired and actually raised the profile of James' good work.

The First Lady appears to have taken the basketballer's side over her husband's after Trump lashed out at James on Twitter following a CNN interview.

What you're about to read is going to sound like a wacky sports mad lib, but it's not.

The reason for that diss was that the president ended up canceling his invitation to the White House for the Golden State Warriors in order for them to celebrate winning the championship there. Ben Simmons said James is "a smart dude (and one of the most thoughtful athletes we have).You're a constant embarrassment". In his interview with Lemon, he said he'd consider running for president if he believed he was the only person who could stop Trump from being re-elected.
