Trump Targets LeBron James, Don Lemon on Twitter After CNN Interview Airs

In his most recent random, yet on-the-nose lash out, President Donald Trump attacked LeBron James and denounced his intelligence after watching a CNN interview with the National Basketball Association star and reporter Don Lemon.

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.

Responding to James' recent interview on CNN with anchor Don Lemon - an interview that includes critical takes of the president from King James - Trump took to Twitter to fire back. Trump also appears to say, in the same tweet, that he prefers Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan over James in terms of great basketball players. In the tweet, Trump insults Lemon's and James' intelligence and ends it by saying, "I like Mike!"
