President Trump Takes Shot LeBron James On Social Media

Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on August 3 to totally diss LeBron James in a tweet that slammed his interview with Don Lemon and implied that he wasn't smart.

After Trump made a late-night tweet insulting the intelligence of LeBron James following an interview with CNN's Don Lemon, the network struck back at what is reportedly a sore point for the president - his wife's apparent affinity for the network he hates. The I Promise School opened its doors Monday in Akron, Ohio ― LeBron's hometown ― and has won praise from advocates for public education like Diane Ravitch.

Trump was unswayed by James' charity, saying it was hard to make "LeBron look smart". The school is aimed at providing comprehensive services for at-risk youth, and James is providing $8 million in funding for it through his LeBron James Family Foundation. The I Promise School will provide free tuition, bicycles, food, counseling and other resources for students.

Additionally, Trump's insult has highlighted a number of comparisons between Trump's and James' accomplishments and behavior, many of which do not redound to Trump's benefit - most obviously, James' new school and Trump University.

"You would never, you don't want to talk to him?" As that Ian bloke said, it's good to see that the cruel comments have backfired and actually raised the profile of James' good work.

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.

"Who's the real dummy?" Trump also appears to say, in the same tweet, that he prefers Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan over James in terms of great basketball players.

Lemon pressed James about a possibility of running for a political office after his National Basketball Association career.

"[Trump] kinda used sports to kinda divide us", James told Lemon.

All-stars Bradley Beal and Karl-Anthony Towns were the first colleagues to react, before Donovan Mitchell also chimed in.

He also called him a "so-called president" in the wake of the Charlottesville violence.
