I support LJ, Jordan said in a statement. "He's doing an wonderful job for his community", the Chicago Bulls legend said. "You know?" said James, who on Monday opened an elementary school for at-risk youth in his native Akron, Ohio.
Trump tweeted late Friday that James was interviewed "by the dumbest man on television", CNN anchor Don Lemon, but that he "made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do".
Grisham says, "It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation". Trump also appears to say, in the same tweet, that he prefers Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan over James in terms of great basketball players.
If anyone was wondering where Donald Trump might land on the LeBron vs. Jordan debate, a tweet of his from Friday night might clear it up.
Lemon responded Saturday morning by calling out the Trump's controversial immigration policies. He opened a glorious public school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio - that's why he was being interviewed on CNN - and is already paying for over 1,000 students to attend the University of Akron. In 2013, Trump tweeted that he thought James was a "great player and a great guy", and sent another congratulating the National Basketball Association star on winning at the ESPYS.
This is not the first time James and the president have been at odds. He also ended by tweet by stating he preferred Michael Jordan. James also said that he'd "never" sit down for a meeting with Trump.

The basketball player appeared at a rally for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign in his home state of OH, a critical swing state during the election that Trump ended up carrying.
