President Donald Trump got his Twitter fingers out late Friday night to take a shot at Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James. Coincidentally, Trump will be in OH today for a campaign rally; what are the chances?

In his interview with CNN, James discussed his recent venture in establishing the I Promise School, a public school for at-risk youth in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, as well as his disdain for the president.

'LeBron puts children through school. Lemon tweeted. "A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?"

LeBron James and President Trump used Twitter for different purposes this week.

'Pop quiz - Besides all being smarter & better in every way than he is, what else do they have in common?

James has been clear in his feelings about the President for sometime now, most notably calling him a "bum" less than 11 months ago.

"Even POTUS" supporters found the tweet to be in bad taste. That angers me beyond belief.

'When you're part of sports, it brings so much camaraderie and so much fun. "We are in a position right now in America, more importantly, where this whole - this race thing - is taking over". After throwing insults at both men, Trump also mentioned that he likes "Mike", which is nearly certainly a reference to Jordan. NBC News outlines some of the LeBron-Lemon discussion that may have ticked the president off, including James asserting that he thinks Trump uses sports to create divisive rifts.

Trump's first comments about NFL players who protest during the national anthem came just weeks after he rescinded the Golden State Warriors invitation to the White House.

He said that sports helped him to understand white people and be around them.

Early this year, a federal court approved a $25 million settlement for former students of Trump University, who claimed the school was a bait-and-switch operation that did not offer the real estate industry insights it promised. The school was designed for marginalized children who will attend free of tuition and expenses.

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