LeBron James is hyped for week 2 of his I Promise School

Michael Jordan says 'I support' LeBron James after Trump attack

Even First Lady Melania Trump had positive things to say about James's work in the wake of her husband's tweet.

The President fired off a tweet at 10.37 p.m. ET on Friday night after CNN re-aired an interview with James.

James is considered by many to be the greatest player in basketball history, rivaled by Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan.

"This president constantly denigrates people of color", Lemon said, before showing a series of clips of Trump attacking Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and questioning former President Barack Obama's birthplace.

The CNN anchor noted he was responding to Trump's personal attack the week of the one-year anniversary of the deadly white nationalist march in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon", the tweet read. "[LeBron James]. He's doing an fantastic job for his community".

The Commander-in-chief was referring to an interview in which the National Basketball Association legend opened up to Lemon about how he felt Trump had used sport to exacerbate United States racial tensions.

"So let me get this straight: Flint, Missouri, has dirty water still, but you anxious about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?" he asked the president on Twitter.

A more cynical interpretation of the events of recent days might be that Trump's relatives and officials, by adopting more mainstream positions on certain issues, are carrying out a political strategy that can complement the President's often wild interventions to please his base.

Interviewer Don Lemon criticised Mr Trump's tweet, and responded by referring to the separation of child migrants from their parents: "Who's the real dummy?"

His comments come after a controversial offseason in which the NFL announced a policy that would require players to stand during the national anthem if they were on the field. "We, the decent and truly patriotic people who really love America and believe in this its greatness have to".

Donald Trump had to pay $25 million for ripping off university students.

Conservative Anna Paulina, a fellow panelist (shown above, far left), then jumped in and tried bringing up the specific white people Trump has criticized.
