Twitter lit up with criticism against President Donald Trump after he took aim at NBA star LeBron James on Friday night. In an interview that aired on CNN last Monday, James and CNN host Don Lemon discussed politics and James’ recent opening of a school for underprivileged children. 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. “He’s dividing us,” James said. “What I noticed over the last few months that he’s kind of used sport to kind of divide us, and that’s something that I can’t relate to. Because I know that sport was the first time I ever was around someone white.” Trump hit back at James and Lemon, calling the latter “the dumbest man on television.” He added that Lemon “made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.” The president wrapped up the tweet by declaring, “I like Mike!” The statement was likely a reference to NBA legend Michael Jordan, James’ competitor in the debate over who the greatest NBA player of all time is.
