Donald Trump insults LeBron James on Twitter

Donald Trump insults LeBron James on Twitter

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on August 3 to totally diss LeBron James in a tweet that slammed his interview with Don Lemon and implied that he wasn't smart.

The public school provides free tuition, uniforms, bicycles and helmets, transportation within two miles, breakfast, lunch, snacks, a food pantry for families, GEDs and job placement services for parents, and - last but not least - guaranteed tuition to the University of Akron for every student who graduates. In the tweet, Trump also appeared to take sides in the LeBron James vs.

The LeBron James-Michael Jordan debate has officially reached the Oval Office, though President Donald Trump doesn't seem to be making his choice based on basketball reasons. "A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?" followed by the #BeBest hashtag, in reference to First Lady Melania Trump's campaign discussing children's well-being.

Trump's tweet came four days after the interview originally aired on CNN.

"I can't sit back and say nothing", James said in his CNN interview.

James backed Democrat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 USA presidential election. He followed that up to say he would sit across from Barack Obama.

They said he was embezzling money and later lied about it to investigators - before agreeing to flip and testify against Manafort. Paul Manafort faces 18 criminal counts, including bank fraud, and could face up to 30 years in jail if found guilty.

That suggests Trump was referring to Jordan at the end of his tweet. He unleashed a tweet following the racial violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last August saying, "Hate has always existed in America".

On the court, James embarks on a new chapter in his career with the L.A. Lakers next season and although the Purple and Gold have curiously filled out their roster, they are expected to make the playoffs in a competitive west. "Statues has nothing to do with us now!"

He also, after former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly called him a "moron", challenged his own Cabinet member to an IQ test.

James has been critical of Trump on multiple occasions, and has supported players who've opted out of visiting the White House during the Trump presidency.

In that way, the issues intersect, but Trump and his conservative base have said the protest has shown disrespect for the flag and military, upturning the conversation into one about patriotism and sacrifice.

James spent 11 seasons with the Cavs, winning a title in 2016 to end Cleveland's 52-year drought without a pro sports championship.
