Trump aims tweet at LeBron James, questions his intelligence

Trump aims tweet at LeBron James, questions his intelligence

The tweet came after James said during the interview that Trump is using sports to try and "divide" the US.

Queried on what he'd say to Trump if they were face to face, he was quick to say, "I would never sit across from him".

James also referred to Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, who said he wouldn't visit the White House after his team won the championship, prompting the president to disinvite the team. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't to do.

LeBron James' first tweet after receiving a petty attack from Donald Trump had nothing to do with the president. Thanks to resourceful Twitter users who've made it their job to expose the President's many fallacies, we now have record of Trump heaping praise over LeBron on countless occasions, contrary to his reactionary stance last night. "I like Mike!" the tweet read. In the tweet, Trump insults Lemon's and James' intelligence and ends it by saying, "I like Mike!"

"For someone to try to divide us by using our platform of sport?" he told Nichols.

India strips four millions of citizenship in Assam
In 1983, more than 2,000 suspected Muslim migrants were massacred by a mob in the village of Nellie. A lot of them settled in Assam, which has a near-270 km (165-mile) border with Bangladesh.

Lemon asked James what he would say to President Trump if he was sitting across from him.

During the interview, James and Lemon toured the school and discussed sports, politics and race relations. LeBron publicly criticized Donald back in September 2017 when he called him a "bum" in a tweet for cancelling his invitation to the Golden State Warriors to celebrate their championship win at the White House.

James and Lemon have yet to respond to Trump's tweet.

Trump has been strongly critical of the NFL for failing to punish players who kneel during the national anthem as a form of protest.

In 2013, Mr Trump tweeted: "Lebron is a great player and a great guy!" The school caters to underprivileged children, offering them free tuition, free books, and even a free bike to all those who attend. New Los Angeles Lakers man, LeBron James, of course. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not return a request for comment, nor did James's agency Klutch Sports Group.
