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".

United States media then reported that the USA president had been involved in the initial statement his son issued on the meeting. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere .

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.

Pres. Trump Hosts MAGA Rally In Ohio
President Trump is hitting the campaign trail for his third rally this week Saturday, this time, in Lewis Center, Ohio. James spoke to Lemon from the public school he opened for at-risk kids in Akron, called the I Promise school.

"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.

Why? 'Isolated from the external world, isolated from commercial compromises and isolated from every possible influence'. Pogba was inconsistent last season and was even dropped by the United boss for a spell in the second half of the season.

The tweet also included a hashtag for the first lady's Be Best campaign, which focuses on anti-cyberbullying and was launched in May to help improve child well-being.
