LeBron James is a philanthropist of the highest order, highlighted by his new I Promise School for disadvantaged youth in his hometown of Akron. To discuss about his new school, James appeared on CNN.
Trump entered one of basketball’s most heated debates with a single tweet Friday evening, President Donald Trump insulted the three-time NBA champion’s intelligence in a randomly-timed tweet, saying that James had been interviewed by CNN anchor Don Lemon, who Trump called “the dumbest man on television.”
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!

This tweet comes after LeBron James criticized Donald Trump.
He said he felt Trump was “using sports to kinda divide us.”
“Sports has never been something that divides people,” James told Lemon. “It’s always been something that brings someone together.”
As of late Saturday Morning, James had not responded to the president’s tweet.
