This week LeBron James opened his I Promise school for students in his hometown of Akron, Ohio and was the subject of a couple of high profile interviews, one with CNN’s Don Lemon. The King’s talk with Lemon caught the attention of President Donald Trump who took aim at both late Friday night on Twitter.
“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do,” Trump tweeted.
The President closed his latest personal attack with “I like Mike!,” a statement that draws a comparison of James and Michael Jordan for the continued argument on who is the greatest to ever touch a basketball.

President Trump was a topic in the interview as the new Los Angeles Laker stated he felt Trump used sports to create a divide within the country.
