On Friday evening, President Donald Trump sent out a tweet while watching a replayed interview between CNN correspondent Don Lemon and LeBron James regarding the opening of LeBron's "I promise" schools.

James spoke to Lemon from the public, non-charter school he opened for at-risk kids in Akron, called the I Promise school.

"I support LJ", Jordan, now the owner of the NBA's Charlotte Hornets, said in a statement released through his publicist.

The First Lady's pro-LeBron message was the latest indication of that she might not be seeing eye-to-eye with her spouse. He added that Lemon "made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do".

President Donald Trump blames the practices for putting U.S. companies at a disadvantage and helping to create a trade deficit. In early rounds, the United States and China went threat for threat, matching $50 billion and then $100 billion salvos.

In the interview, the National Basketball Association superstar said the President was using athletics and athletes to split up the country and would not sit down across from Trump if he were given the opportunity.

CNN noted that Trump's pattern of attacking well-known African-Americans as having "low IQs" echoes the white nationalist view that blacks are genetically less intelligent than white folks. But James has been outspoken about the president's policies, once calling him a "bum" for disinviting the Golden State Warriors to the White House.

James, who is departing from the Cleveland Cavaliers to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, is leaving far more than an impressive athletic reputation in his home state of Ohio.

Billie Jean King tweeted praise for LeBron James Sunday morning.

Heading into July, Blackburn maintained an early 2-to-1 cash advantage over Bredesen, with $7.3 million in her bank account. Blackburn has billed herself as a "hardcore, card-carrying Tennessee conservative" from the outset of her campaign.

"He's doing an incredible job for his community", Jordan, now owner of the National Basketball Association's Charlotte Hornets, told NBC News through a spokesperson.

Prior to his presidency, Trump actually supported James on Twitter.

And in an interview with CNN this week, James told Lemon that Trump was “trying to divide our sport, but at the end of the day, sport is the reason why we all come together”. "A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?" Lemon tweeted a response that read, "Who's the real dummy?"

To summarise, Donald attacked LeBron in the week he opened a school to uplift the community in which he grew up.
