  • Trump Targets LeBron James, Don Lemon on Twitter After CNN Interview Airs

Trump insulted the intelligence of both the National Basketball Association superstar and CNN host Don Lemon in a Friday night tweet, writing "Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon".

But in yet another blow for the President, Jordan came out in support of James, saying he's "doing unbelievable work for his community".

Trump bashed James in a tweet Friday night saying that CNN's Don Lemon is the "dumbest man on television" and that he made James "look smart".

During the the interview, James addressed President Donald Trump, who James believes is using sports to divide the country.

Trump's comments came four days after CNN's Don Lemon interviewed James on Monday.

Trump wrote a tweet Friday night questioning James' intelligence after he gave an interview to CNN and criticized the American president.

Lemon responded to Trump's tweet this morning with a nod to First Lady Melania Trump's campaign against bullying.

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

LeBron, who has slammed him in the past, also said he "would never sit across" from the US leader, adding, "I'd sit across from Barack Obama though". In September, James called Trump a "bum" for uninviting the NBA-champion Golden State Warriors to the White House.

James' foundation has partnered with the Akron Public Schools system to open the "I Promise" School, an elementary school that will support at-risk youth.

During the said interview, LeBron did say his opinion on Trump, and it looks like the leader of the free world didn't like that.

"I support LeBron James". But the attack on James, who was being interviewed by another black man, to some resembled a racial dog whistle.

The New York Times even reported last month that Trump was "enraged" when he saw CNN on Melania's TV on Air Force One. Stephen Curry, who Mr. Trump claimed a year ago he disinvited from the White House, wrote "Keep doing you" with a link to James' interview. "We are in a position right now in America, more importantly, where this whole - this race thing - is taking over". His war of words with basketball superstar, LeBron James.
