Trump tweet slams LeBron James, Don Lemon over CNN interview
President Trump responded by Twitter on Friday evening to a CNN anchor’s recent interview with an NBA superstar.
"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look wise, which isn’t effortless to do. I like Mike!" Trump tweeted.
The CNN anchor, Don Lemon, interviewed LeBron James, the former Cleveland Cavaliers star who lately signed a huge contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.
At the end of his message, the president seemed to be expressing his preference for Michael Jordan, the NBA legend who retired in 2003.
Throughout their interview, James and Lemon toured "I Guarantee," a college for at-risk youngsters that James has established in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. The pair discussed sports, politics and race relations.
Trump seemed to take problem with some of James’ comments.
James told Lemon he believes the president is employing sports to divide people, while James believes sports has "always been anything that brings an individual with each other."
When Lemon pressed James if he would take into account running for president, he ultimately said, "Let’s see first."
Previously, CNN aired a segment in which the three-time NBA champion was asked regardless of whether he&rsquod sit down with Trump, who James as soon as called a &ldquobum&rdquo for disinviting Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry from the White Home.
&ldquoI would never sit across from him," James said about Trump.
Trump hasn’t always had a damaging opinion of James. In a 2013 tweet, Trump wrote, "Lebron is a excellent player and a great guy!"
