Donald Trump Takes Shot At LeBron James’ Intelligence In Wild Tweet

Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James

Donald Trump takes shot at LeBron James

When Lemon pressed James if he would consider running for president, he eventually said, "Let's see first".

In the interview James and Lemon covered an array of topics, including Trump's presidency. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump tweeted.

LeBron James and President Trump used Twitter for different purposes this week.

Lemon came to James' defense on Saturday morning, tweeting: "Who's the real dummy?"

OH governor John Kasich, a Republican like Trump, and former newscaster Dan Rather also criticized the President's tweet about James.

It is not clear who Trump meant when he said "I like Mike!" NBC News outlines some of the LeBron-Lemon discussion that may have ticked the president off, including James asserting that he thinks Trump uses sports to create divisive rifts.

European Union offers trade talks to Trump despite steel and olive tariffs
The two sides will seek to resolve the steel and aluminum tariff issues as well as a number of tariffs imposed in retaliation. The official said that the bloc is ready to introduce new counter-tariffs on $20 billion worth of the United States imports.

The tweet was referring to an unverified story that Trump was recently angry after discovering that his wife's TV on Air Force One was set to CNN.

"The school, the Foundation explains, is a "culmination of years of on-the-ground work and research-based interventions" funded by James" I PROMISE program. Trump has frequently lashed out against CNN for critical coverage of him, frequently calling the network "fake news" and lobbing personal insults to reporters, and even banning some of the network's reporters for critical coverage and tough questions of him. Not one word or follow-up that takes issue with anything either man has actually said. Last September he called Trump a "bum" after the president appeared to disinvite the National Basketball Association championship-winning Golden State Warriors from a traditional White House visit because one of their stars, Stephen Curry, criticised Trump. I know why. Some of y'all need to start believing what he is showing you. "I can't sit back and not say nothing", James said of Trump's actions.

"Sounds like [first lady Melania Trump] had the remote last night", the network tweeted.

CNN's public relations arm also responded to president's tweet on Saturday.

The tweet from Mr. Trump's official account ended by saying "I like Mike!"
