"What I've noticed over the past few months", James told Lemon, "is [Trump has] kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to".

This is presumably in retaliation to James' comments in a CNN interview with Don Lemon, during which he stated he would not sit across from Trump, but would sit across from former president Barack Obama. "Sports have never been something that divide people it's always been something that brings people together".

Donald Trump has taunted National Basketball Association player LeBron James over his intelligence, claiming it "isn't easy" to make him "look smart".

In a tweet, Trump took aim at two of his regular critics, James and cable TV news personality Don Lemon. Now he is referring to CNN's Don Lemon as the "dumbest man on television", while also claiming that it "isn't easy to" make Lebron look smart.

Mike is apparently a reference to Michael Jordan, who has often been compared to James.

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. Students' parents receive GED classes and job placement assistance, and if the student completes the school program and graduates from high school, James will cover their full tuition at the University of Akron.

Other players from around the league, including Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns and Utah's Donovan Mitchell, came to James' defense on social media.

In June, Trump said that neither the Cleveland Cavaliers - James' previous team - nor the Golden State Warriors would be invited to the White House following the NBA Finals.
