Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James

Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James”

"Sports have never been something that divide people it's always been something that brings people together".

The most vile President ever to hold office just tweeted, "Lebron (sic) James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon".

LeBron James thinks President Trump is using athletics, and athletes, to split up the country.

He opened a glorious public school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio - that's why he was being interviewed on CNN - and is already paying for over 1,000 students to attend the University of Akron. Thanks to resourceful Twitter users who've made it their job to expose the President's many fallacies, we now have record of Trump heaping praise over LeBron on countless occasions, contrary to his reactionary stance last night.

James and Lemon have yet to respond to Trump's tweet.

Trump finished the tweet with "I like Mike!" an apparent reference to favoring National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan in a comparison with James as perhaps the best National Basketball Association player ever. "If someone tried to recruit a LeBron to run for president, they said, "Listen, they've got no one, if you don't run, Trump's going to win, ' would you run?"

On Friday, Trump tweeted about James and Lemon, who has also been critical of him in the past.

This isn't the first time James has called Trump out.

He was responding to remarks by then-Cavs star James and Warriors ace Stephen Curry, who both said they would not attend a White House reception.

To be fair, James has also not been so kind to Trump on Twitter in the past, though he probably won't be changing his mind in the near future.

The four-time NBA MVP, 33, branded the USA leader " a bum" after he rescinded an invitation for NBA champions the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House a year ago, amid doubts over whether some players - including star man Stephen Curry - would attend.

James did not hold back on his thoughts about Trump during his interview with Lemon.
