Donald Trump attacks LeBron James in late-night tweet

Donald Trump attacks LeBron James in late-night tweet

Saturday has produced an outpouring of support for LeBron James in the wake of President Donald Trump's Twitter attack calling into question the National Basketball Association superstar's intelligence. "We could not be more proud to have LeBron James as part of our Lakers family", Buss said in a released statement on behalf of the team. "He is doing an fantastic job for his community".

Trump tweeted his thoughts Friday (Aug. 3) following CNN's re-airing of Don Lemon's interview with James where he talked about his I Promise School, which helps 240 children with programs dedicated to accelerated learning. He added that Lemon "made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do".

In the interview with CNN's Lemon, James gave a tour of the "I Promise" school, his latest venture, which is a school for at-risk youth.

What's especially wonderful. LeBron actually exercised restraint on Lemon's show in criticizing the President.

"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?"

"I hate that Trump tweet about LeBron so much but I'm still laughing at the "I like Mike" part", said user @BrettRasdall.

The MPC said momentum in domestic economic activity continued to be sustained and the output gap had virtually closed. Carney was due to give a news conference to explain the central bank's latest thinking at 1130 GMT.

The James-Trump feud has been brewing for months.

"U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!" James also mentioned Colin Kaepernick, who was targeted by Trump for his protests over racial injustice by kneeling during the anthem.

During the interview, James also discussed a new school he has opened for underprivileged children in his home town in OH, which offers free meals and bikes to students, as well as job placement assistance for parents and an on-site food bank.

James hasn't responded yet to the criticism, buy many other athletes have. He punctuated it with "I like Mike!"

And in an interview with CNN this week, James told Lemon that Trump was "trying to divide our sport, but at the end of the day, sport is the reason why we all come together".

The statement notes that Mrs. Trump has been promoting her Be Best campaign and talking to children about the "importance of responsible online behavior". Yahoo News White House correspondent Hunter Walker points out that before James started criticizing Trump, Trump used to be a fan.
