Melania Trump Sides with LeBron James: " He's Working to Do Good Things"

Melania Trump Sides with LeBron James:

Michael Jordan is speaking out in support of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James after President Donald Trump insulted his intelligence.

"I support LJ. He's doing an awesome job for his community", Jordan told NBC News through a spokesperson.

If you missed it, LeBron said Trump is using sports to divide us [America] in his latest interview with Don Lemon on CNN this week following the opening of his I Promise school.

Although James has always been a Trump critic, calling the president "U bum" in a 2017 tweet, the tweet was Trump's first attack on the player, who just opened up a school for underprivileged children in his hometown of Akron.

In the tweet that started it all, Trump also said that Lemon made "Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do".

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.

Asked what he would say to Trump if he were present, James replied, "I would never sit across from him".

Well, a lot more did go wrong, as he then managed to throw three more interceptions, all in the first half alone. Montreal's head coach, Mike Sherman, recruited Manziel to Texas A&M , coaching him during his redshirt season.

James, meanwhile, did not weigh in on the debate and instead on Saturday morning shared photos from the school he just opened. Utah Jazz star guard and noted good guy Donovan Mitchell thought Trump's tweet was a sign of insecurity.

"Her platform centers around visiting organizations, hospitals and schools, and she would be open to visiting the I Promise School in Akron", Grisham added.

To the sporting world and largely beyond, he's King James, but to President Trump, LeBron James is no intellectual genius.

Someone else commented: "Lebron's school will make a more powerful and positive impact in more people's than Trump could ever dream of". "I support LeBron James", he said through a spokesman. An unnamed senior White House official told ABC News that Trump wasn't siding with James, but rather siding with children.

Other players from around the league, including Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns and Utah's Donovan Mitchell, came to James' defense on social media.

Trump "caused a bit of a stir", according to internal White House memos obtained by the New York Times, and ordered that only Fox News be shown on the presidential plane.

Picking a fight with one of Ohio's most beloved sports stars might not be a smart move by a president who plans to campaign Saturday in the Buckeye state for Troy Balderson before a crucial special election Tuesday.
