Athletes, fans slam Donald Trump for insulting LeBron James

US President Donald Trump sniped back at NBA great LeBron James late Friday, days after the basketball player and philanthropist accused him of fueling racial divides in the United States.

"I support LJ. He's doing an fantastic job for his community", Jordan said in a statement provided to The Washington Post by a spokesperson. "He's doing an unbelievable job for his community".

Earlier this week, James was a guest on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon for an interview about the "I Promise" school that opened in Akron on Monday. CNN's Don Lemon hosted former Cleveland Cavaliers player LeBron James in an interview on Friday during which the player turned political and attacked the president. LeBron James is a beloved athlete using his wealth and resources to make the world a better place, aka everything that Trump stands against.

A Houston Astro is now speaking his mind on the dispute between President Donald Trump and National Basketball Association star LeBron James.

The First Lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham issued a statement saying, she'd be open to visiting his I Promise School adding that he's, "working to do good things". It said: "I support LeBron James".

Melania Trump has chose to be best in her husband's fight with LeBron James.

And in February, James used an expletive to claim that Trump does not care "about the people". James tweeted at the time.

Numerous program's participants seemed shocked and frustrated to learn that their monetary plan for the next three years was being thrown out the window.

During the interview, James said conversations about race had "taken over" in part because "our president is kind of trying to divide us".

As outrage over Mr Trump's comments grew, James sent out a tweet of his own, but not one directly aimed at Trump.

"I would never sit across from him", James said about Trump.

Trump is traveling to OH on Saturday for a campaign rally.

James, meanwhile, did not weigh in on the debate and instead on Saturday morning shared photos from the school he just opened. He also created a program for parents of the at-risk children to return to complete their high school educations, and he has planned an institute to help prepare high-school-age students for college.

Utah Jazz star guard and noted good guy Donovan Mitchell thought Trump's tweet was a sign of insecurity. Lemon tweeted. "A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?"
