Jordan responds to Trump's comments on James

The LeBron James Family Foundation partnered with Akron Public Schools to design the school for students in the area who come from hard circumstances.

The most vile President ever to hold office just tweeted, "Lebron (sic) James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon".

In his tweet, Trump insulted Lemon and then said that it's "not easy" to make James look smart.

At the end of his message, the president seemed to be expressing his preference for Michael Jordan, the National Basketball Association legend who retired in 2003.

As Trump himself announced just hours later, he will be campaigning Saturday night on behalf of Troy Balderson, the Republican candidate in a closely-fought special election for the House seat representing Ohio's 12th Congressional district. He has also been frequently critical of the president.

"I like Mike!" Trump tweeted.

James complained in the interview that Trump was trying to divide the country through athletics. Students will attend school from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. and students will receive free college tuition at the University of Akron if they graduate high school.

Cheese had a better system for preventing children from being separated from their parents than the United States government. The Senate remains in session and is set to go on break the week of August 6 before returning for the rest of the month.

"I would never sit across from him", he said.

The new Laker talked to Lemon about the new school he was starting, but the conversation often veered back to politics and Trump.

"So let me get this straight: Flint, MI has dirty water still, but you anxious about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?"

The NBA great admitted to having "jitters" before the opening, an event he said is "going to be one of the greatest moments - if not the greatest - of my life". But even some Trump allies chided the remark. In his interview with Lemon, he said he'd consider running for president if he believed he was the only person who could stop Trump from being re-elected. The school is aimed at providing comprehensive services for at-risk youth, and James is providing $8 million in funding for it through his LeBron James Family Foundation.

That echoed comments he made in January that Trump had "given people and racism... an opportunity to be out and outspoken without fear". He has been criticized for complimenting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ("smart cookie") and Russian president Vladimir Putin ("very smart") and has been known to praise himself as "a very stable genius".

He also called him a "so-called president" in the wake of the Charlottesville violence.

James played for over a decade - and in two stints - with the Cleveland Cavaliers and delivered a title to the championship-starved region in 2016.
