First lady Melania Trump appears to have sided with Lebron James on Saturday, after her husband took a shot at the NBA star. In a tweet Friday night, the US President said, quote, Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do.
But a day later, in a statement released by the First Lady spokeswoman, she praised James for his work with children and said she'd be open to visiting the new elementary school James opened for at-risk children in his home state of Ohio. The President's tweet followed a CNN interview where the three-time NBA champion talked about opening the school.
>> Kids just wanna know if we care about them.>> James on numerous occasions has criticized Trump. Last year he called him a quote, bum, after the US President rescinded an invitation to the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House after winning the NBA Championship. In a final dig at James, the President's tweet finish with quote, I like Mike, a reference to the ongoing Lebron James versus Michael Jordan debate on who's the greatest NBA player of all time.
James has yet to respond to the President's tweet.
