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.
