"He's doing an unbelievable job for his community", Jordan, now owner of the National Basketball Association's Charlotte Hornets, told NBC News through a spokesperson.
Reacting to Trump's tweet, fellow athletes, sports writers and fans jumped to James' defence and criticised the United States president, while Jordan also offered his support.
China plans tariffs on $60bn of imports to counter Trump
The ministry said timing of the implementation of the new tariffs on U.S. goods would depend on the actions of the US. China's biggest US imports by value in 2017 were aircraft and related equipment, soybeans and autos.
Melania Trump praised LeBron James for his charity work less than a day after her husband attacked the National Basketball Association superstar's intellect in a tweet Friday night. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", he wrote, and then apparently took a side in the James vs. Michael Jordan debate.
LeBron James' first tweet after receiving a petty attack from Donald Trump had nothing to do with the president.
Lemon responded to Trump's tweet on Saturday morning. "I like Mike!" Trump tweeted.
"I support LeBron James". But instead of praising an athletic icon for opening a school, Trump basically called James a dummy. A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?
Even Republican John Kasich took Mr Trump to task for his comments on James.
Venezuela says explosions an attack on Maduro
Earlier, various reports by global media outlets had indicated that this was an assassination attempt on Maduro. Camacho says that several members of the Venezuelan National Guard were injured during the incident.
At the time, James came to Curry's defence. In addition to talking about the school, James talked about how Trump is using athletics and athletes to divide the country.
LeBron James has just opened up a school for underprivileged children in his hometown of Akron.
This isn't the first time James has spoken out about POTUS. His biography on the official NBA website reads, "By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time".
Trump's rally lasted for more than an hour, and while he attacked Democrats and other familiar targets, he never mentioned the home-state hero.
"This is a late night tweet from the PRESIDENT", Smith said.

So should Nurmagomedov and McGregor put pen to paper in the next few days, their bout could very well be announced at the event. McGregor will avoid jail time and instead serve five days of community service and attent anger management classes.
