Trump hits back at LeBron James over racial division comments

Share

Many tweeters suggested that Trump may have held out from criticising James until he moved away from OH, which is a crucial swing state for the President. In their interview, LeBron accused Trump of "using sports" to divide the country. Trump called Lemon "the dumbest man on television", then implied LeBron is dumb.

Earlier this month LeBron James made a stir in the news for his choice to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The "Mike" diss at the end is likely a reference to National Basketball Association great Michael Jordan to whom James is often being compared.

We will update this story if the tweet storm continues. James also mentioned Colin Kaepernick, who was targeted by Trump for his protests over racial injustice by kneeling during the anthem.

James has been outspoken in his dislike for Trump in the past.

"He doesn't understand the power that he has for being the leader of this attractive country", James said then. In a recent one-on-one interview with CNN's Don Lemon, James sat down to unveil the newly opened I Promise School-a public school launched by the Lebron James Family Foundation-in Akron, Ohio.

Basketball superstar LeBron James showed a touch of class by opening a school for underprivileged children in his home town.

The school is a partnership between the LeBron James Family foundation and the Akron Public School and is created to serve Akron's most challenged students.

At the end of the interview, Lemon asked if James, "What would you say to the president if he were sitting right here?"

Rob Gorski issued a warning for Trump not to come to OH after disrespecting James. "But I think the president in charge now has given people - they don't care now, they throw it to your face", he said. "(Is) he's kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to".

Carrie, who signed with the Browns as a free agent in March after four seasons with Oakland, said James' efforts lead him to want to do more.
