Don Lemon Takes Jabs At Donald Trump After LeBron James Interview

Adjust Comment Print

On Saturday, Trump's wife Melania released a statement through a spokesperson to CNN in support of James and his good work for his community. "He's doing an fantastic job for his community".

Many NBA stars took the side of LeBron James after the tweet of United States president Donald Trump against the newest Laker and even Michael Jordan defends the current "King" of the NBA.

Last year, James was critical of Trump, calling him a "bum" when the President rescinded his invitation for the 2017 National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors to visit the White House, after the Warriors said they would not accept an invitation. Of course, the president also got a final dig in at James, saying "I like Mike", a reference to all-time great Chicago Bulls guard Michael Jordan.

James, who campaigned for Mr Trump's opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, and has not been shy about using his celebrity for social causes, took part in the interview from the public school he opened for underprivileged children in Akron, called the "I Promise" school.

"In response, a spokeswoman for Melania Trump said that the first lady watches 'any channel she wants, '" the Hill reported.

This is not the first time James and the president have been at odds.

"What I've noticed over the past few months (is) he's (Trump) kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to", James told Lemon.

James, one of the most prominent athletes in the U.S., has been critical of Trump for years.

Jordan actually responded to the president's tweet in a statement to the Associated Press.

Only a day before the First Lady's glowing endorsement of James, President Trump criticized the basketball legend via Twitter.

“Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!” James tweeted at the time.

That suggests Trump was referring to Jordan at the end of his tweet. 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.
