  • Donald Trump attacks LeBron James in late-night tweet

"I support LJ. He's doing an wonderful job for his community", Mr. Jordan said in a statement. "He's doing an awesome job for his community", the Chicago Bulls legend said. On Monday, James was in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, to welcome children to his I Promise School, which was built as part of a partnership with the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron City Schools.

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

After Donald Trump sniped back at LeBron James' suggestion that he fuels American racial divides, support has flooded in for the National Basketball Association great - including from the U.S. president's own wife, Melania.

In a tweet, Trump took aim at two of his regular critics, James and cable TV news personality Don Lemon. Grisham said Trump would even consider visiting the school that James opened last week in Ohio.

The first lady, however, is apparently unaffected by the animus James has toward her husband, nor does she appear to be letting the President's statement about James affect her own feelings on the matter.

President Donald Trump is turning his wrath on basketball superstar LeBron James. At the end of the interview, Lemon asked if James, "What would you say to the president if he were sitting right here?"

"Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

While James has yet to respond, many of his fans did, offering some scathing critiques of the president's insults and the implied racism lurking beneath the surface of Trump's angry tweet.

James, meanwhile, did not weigh in on the debate and instead on Saturday morning shared photos from the school he just opened.

James has been a vocal critic of Trump since he took office.

Several NBA players, however, fired back at President Trump in the wake of the tweet. It's unclear if that extends to the First Lady, too.

Mr. Trump has never before criticized James directly.
