Trump Attacks LeBron James And Don Lemon In Latest Twitter Rant

In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon aired earlier in the week, the LA Lakers star said Trump had stirred racial tensions in United States sports in an attempt to "divide" the nation.

When we're a sport website and we have to talk about Donald Trump, you know he's done something silly - once again.

OH governor John Kasich, a Republican like Trump, and former newscaster Dan Rather also criticized the President's tweet about James.

Friday night, the president tweeted his displeasure about both men. He then followed it up with 'I like Mike!', a clear reference to preferring Michael Jordan over James.

"Who's the real dummy?", the CNN anchor tweeted Saturday.

James also referred to Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, who said he wouldn't visit the White House after his team won the championship, prompting the president to disinvite the team.

"Sports was the first time I was ever around someone white", revealed the four-time NBA MVP.

While LeBron James is staying out of the fray and not responding to Donald Trump's insult, many of his supporters are showing their love for LeBron and his mission by making donations to the school.

"For me, everything where I grew up was on top of the refrigerator", he explained. The school caters to underprivileged children, offering them free tuition, free books, and even a free bike to all those who attend. But it's from this existence that his "I Promise School" has been born.

On Monday, James spoke at lengths about the President, race and politics in a wide-ranging interview which aired just hours after opening his new I Promise School in Akron, Ohio.

"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?" "And really don't give a f-- about the people", James said. One, because I believe our president is trying to divide us. "Sports has never been something that divides people", LeBron, who recently signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, explained in the interview.
