"In the tweet, posted late Friday, he calls Lemon the 'dumbest ma on television" and implies that James is not as smart as Lemon portrayed him.

Trump also suggested he prefers basketball legend Michael Jordan to James, a possible reference to the keen debate about which of the two men is the better player.

For all the good LeBron James did this week with the opening of the I Promise School in Akron, Ohio, for at-risk students, he's simultaneously embroiled in a bit of controversy.

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. "What I've noticed over the last few months is that he's kind of used sports to kind of divide us".

After Trump criticized Lemon's and James' intelligence, Lemon, CNN, and other National Basketball Association players took to Twitter to defend James.

James tweeted Saturday about the I Promise school, saying "Love you guys".

The statement's tone was in stark contrast to President Donald Trump's tweet Friday night following James' appearance on CNN in which he told journalist Don Lemon that he "would never sit across" from Trump, whom James has criticized in the past. "Who's the real dummy?"

In the tweet that started it all, Trump also said that Lemon made "Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do". I like Mike (Michael Jordan)!

Buss released a statement through the Lakers expressing her pride for LeBron James being a Laker. "[LeBron James]. He's doing an wonderful job for his community". Grisham adds that the first lady "would be open" to visiting James' school.

Along with Jordan, a number of other athletes spoke out in support of James.

Trump previewed his message for the Columbus-area rally with a tweet saying that while Balderson "is strong" on issues like crime and immigration, "his opponent is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi/high taxes". Trump's former rival Hillary Clinton backed James as a "great family man" and "incredible ballplayer" who "gives back to his community, and isn't afraid to speak his mind".
