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

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

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon".

A combination photo of NBA basketball player LeBron James (L) in Oakland, California January 16, 2013 and U.S. President Donald Trump in Lewis Center, Ohio August 4, 2018.

"Let me not mince words here: This president traffics in racism and is fueled by bullying", Lemon said.

The statement comes after Mr. Trump mocked Mr. James on Twitter following a re-airing of his interview with CNN anchor Don Lemon, in which he accused the president of dividing the country. It seemingly was in response to James accusing President Trump of using sports as a means to divide.

It's not the first time that Trump has individually targeted a sports player for a personal attack.

Many thought that Sierra Canyon in Los Angeles was a viable destination for LeBron's oldest son, as their basketball team now has some notable players already on it, inlcuding sons of retired NBA players like Baron Davis.

As Lemon cycled through the outrage Trump's attacks caused over the weekend, he reminded viewers of the president's attacks on "low IQ" Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) along with his birtherism against former President Barack Obama.

Trump has lambasted National Football League players who knelt during playing of the national anthem as a form of protest against law enforcement's treatment of racial minorities.

LeBron James Family Foundation did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday.

"Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids", Ingraham said at the time on her show. "He's never let our children down".
