  • Melania Trump Has Kind Words For LeBron James | Newsradio 1020 KDKA

On the night of August 3, the president took to Twitter to slam LeBron and journalist Don Lemon after seeing an interview that LeBron gave to CNN about opening the school earlier in the week. He opened I Promise this week in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, to serve as a public school for at-risk youth.

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, who has also clashed with Trump after snubbing an invitation to the White House as an National Basketball Association champion, tweeted his support.

Grisham adds that the first lady "would be open" to visiting James' school. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump tweeted on Friday while watching the rebroadcast of the interview.

Trump blasted James late Friday after an interview aired with CNN anchor Don Lemon in which he deemed Trump divisive.

James, who has been critical of Trump in the past, said during the interview that Trump was using sports to sow divisions in the US.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) reacts after a play against the Boston Celtics in game six of the Eastern conference finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena.

"He's doing an wonderful job for his community", Jordan, now owner of the National Basketball Association's Charlotte Hornets, told NBC News through a spokesperson.

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.

When asked what he would say to Trump if he was sitting right here, James said, "I would never sit across from him". Lemon tweeted, "Who's the real dummy?"

"I don't think we should make much of it at all", Cross said of the statement.

The sports commentator Bill Simmons tweeted: “LeBron is a smart dude (and one of the most thoughtful athletes we have) – this is a bullshit tweet and feels more than a little racist.”.

The President's tweet came after he watched CNN anchor/reporter Don Lemon interview James.

Melania Trump has often traveled solo as well, including on two trips to visit the southern border, where Trump administration policies resulted in the separation of parents from their children.

James had just opened a school for underprivileged children in Ohio.
