President Trump Blasts LeBron James, Don Lemon over Racial Division Comments

Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James

Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James

At one point during their sit-down interview, Lemon asked James about the president, and LeBron essentially said he wouldn't keep company with Trump.

James said he chose to open the school, located down the street from his high school, because he knows exactly what young students are going through. LeBron was discussing the school in the CNN interview on Friday that set off Donald Trump.

He has repeatedly said that anyone who kneels during the anthem should be fired.

Mike is apparently a reference to Michael Jordan, who has often been compared to James. Air Jordan relayed his statement to NBC news in response to receiving unwanted attention from the President at the tail end of his Tweet: "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do". A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?

Donald Trump's tweets are so relentlessly incoherent and offensive, they all start blending together like a racist, sexist Vitamix of bad takes.

On Monday, the same day as the CNN interview, James told ESPN that he felt compelled to speak out about the Trump administration.

"Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

US Economy Grows at 4.1 Percent Annual Rate in 2nd Quarter
The economy will be supported by a $1.5-trillion tax cut package in 2018 and increased government spending in the last quarter. Pay was growing even faster in the late 1960s, when the jobless rate remained below 4 per cent for almost four years.

LeBron James is leaving home again and leaving behind something he says is more meaningful than any of his National Basketball Association championships.

Now a 33-year-old man, with two sons and a daughter, James has more pantries, and more refrigerators, than he'd ever dreamed of as the child of a single teen mom living the "everyday struggle" in Akron, Ohio.

But Trump's election has charged James's outlook, along with other athletes and coaches.

Some say it's just Trump being Trump.

In his interview with Don Lemon, James said that sport had offered him the opportunity to meet people of different backgrounds and race, adding: "Sports has never been something that divides people". "I believe there's someone else out there".

"I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Trump thinks African-Americans are dumb", Tweeted political writer Max Boot.
