President Trump unsurprisingly responded to an interview LeBron James did with CNN’s Don Lemon where the NBA star bashed Trump for using sports to divide America. Trump did not address the content of the interview, but instead just threw shots at Lemon and James as has become customary for the President.
LeBron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” Trump said on the social media website. “He made LeBron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” Trump, of course, is referring to Michael Jordan at the end of his tweet assumingly taking a position on the famous debate of LeBron vs Jordan.
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!

King James and President Trump do have one thing in common though, they both opened schools. LeBron has had praise thrown on him for opening the “I Promise” school in Akron, Ohio that among other things offers a fully paid college tuition for graduating students, provides career training and GED testing for adults and gifts enrollees with a new bicycle and helmet.
Although Bron’s $8 million school has only just opened, with the amount of press and support from prominent figures like Steph Curry and Michelle Obama “I Promise” is getting things look to be on the right track.
Then there’s Trump, who in 2016 was ordered to pay $25 million in a settlement to students of Trump University. The real estate seminar was sued by former students who felt defrauded by Trump University and were granted up to a 90 percent refund in the final court decision.
According to CNN, Trump’s University which was never a licensed university was shut down in 2010. This settlement came during Trump’s campaign run which highly politicized the case. In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Trump defended his educational effort and said the judge on the case, Judge Gonzalo Curiel, could not be impartial because of his Mexican heritage.
President Trump is scheduled to speak at a rally in LeBron’s home state of Ohio tonight. Trump will be campaigning for Troy Balderson in an Ohio special election.
