Trump tweet slams LeBron James, Don Lemon over CNN interview

Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James

The I Promise School is the culmination of almost a decade of work by James' foundation, with its focus on educating children from challenging situations or backgrounds.

Mr. Trump also went after Lemon, calling him the "dumbest man on television". "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump wrote, before adding: "I like Mike!" in an apparent reference to former National Basketball Association superstar Michael Jordan.

Part of James' interview with Lemon was about the new school he opened up in Cleveland to help at-risk youth.

Many tweeters suggested that Trump may have held out from criticising James until he moved away from OH, which is a crucial swing state for the President.

He has repeatedly said that anyone who kneels during the anthem should be fired. Trump is traveling to OH for a campaign rally on Saturday.

"I don't have to tell (asterisk) anyone (asterisk) what LeBron James means to Ohio", Democrat Danny O'Connor tweeted.

In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon aired earlier in the week, the LA Lakers star said Trump had stirred racial tensions in USA sports in an attempt to "divide" the nation. CNN is also one of Mr. Trump's favorite foes.

SUPREME SHOWDOWN: Sen. Rand Paul Vows to SUPPORT Trump's Court Pick
Manchin was one of three Democrats to support Gorsuch, along with Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Donnelly of Indiana. Kavanaugh also said that during his tenure they started weekly meetings with Bush and a few others to discuss speeches.


In 2013, Trump said LeBron was "a great player and a great guy".

Trump is under fire for insulting LeBron's intelligence, just days after James opened a school for underprivileged children.

"Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

James has never been shy about expressing his feelings about President Trump. A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages? Trump had also previously made the move of preemptively not inviting James' Cavaliers and their Warriors opponents last season, when both James and Warriors star Steph Curry said neither team had an interest in visiting the White House as NBA Champions. "This tweet is immature and offensive I would like to know why he considers these two successful black men "dumb". "I believe there's someone else out there".

"Sounds like [first lady Melania Trump] had the remote last night", the network tweeted.

The tweet from CNN also included a reference to Melania's "Be Best" campaign, which was meant to curb cyberbullying.

LeBron has yet to speak out about Donald's latest slamming tweet but it will be interesting to see what he says, if anything!
