Trump insults LeBron James on Twitter

Share

President Trump responded by Twitter on Friday night to a CNN anchor's recent interview with an National Basketball Association superstar.

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James speaks as Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton listens during a campaign stop at Cleveland Public Hall in Cleveland, Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016.

On Monday, when the I Promise School opened, James called it both "bittersweet" because of his departure to play for the Lakers and "one of the greatest moments (if not the greatest) of my life".

To say it's been an active 2018 National Basketball Association offseason for new Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James would be quite the understatement. "I like Mike!" Trump tweeted.

Lemon, meanwhile, used his "CNN Tonight" show last Friday to say that Trump's presidency "can be defined by lies". Sports has never been something that divides people.

Rob Gorski issued a warning for Trump not to come to OH after disrespecting James.

This is far from the first time, however that James has given back to the community.

Trump's tweet came four days after the CNN interview originally aired. The school will teach first through eighth graders by 2022.

James said he chose to open the school, located down the street from his high school, because he knows exactly what young students are going through.

"I've walked the same streets".

Also that month, after Trump suggested that NFL players should be "fired" for "disrespecting the flag" when they take a knee or otherwise choose not to participate in the national anthem, James said Trump's conduct is unbecoming of someone in his position. "I know", James said in an Uninterrupted video.

Impressively, the school boasts a 20-to-1 student-teacher ratio, year-round programming and a 9-to-5 school day to keep its children engaged.

But James isn't just looking to provide support for his students, he wants to support their parents as well.
