Trump Rips LeBron James' Smarts Hours Before Rally in Ohio

LeBron stated: "We are in a position right now in America where this race thing has taken over, one because I believe our president is kind of trying to divide us".

Asked later what he'd say if he ever found himself face-to-face with Trump, he replied: "I would never sit across from him".

LeBron James speaks at a news conference after the opening ceremony for the I Promise School in Akron, Ohio, Monday, July 30, 2018.

In his tweet, Trump insulted Lemon and then said that it's "not easy" to make James look smart.

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon", Trump posted.

LeBron James has made no efforts to hide his dislike for President Donald Trump. "I like Mike!", Donald's highly opinionated tweet read. It also appears as though Trump took Michael Jordan's side in the Lebron vs. Jordan debate saying, "I like Mike!"

When we're a sport website and we have to talk about Donald Trump, you know he's done something silly - once again.

James and Lemon have yet to respond to Trump's tweet. The I Promise School opened its doors Monday in Akron, Ohio ― LeBron's hometown ― and has won praise from advocates for public education like Diane Ravitch. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" He called Trump a "bum" last September after an invitation for the Golden State Warriors to come to the White House was rescinded. He also created a program for parents of the at-risk children to return to complete their high school educations, and he has planned an institute to help prepare high-school-age students for college.

But Lemon also discussed James's political awakening, driven by racial upheaval in the country and Trump's ongoing battle with Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players who have knelt during the national anthem to protest police killings of black men.

He didn't say anything specific about Trump's tweet.

James recently completed a move to the LA Lakers from Cleveland Cavaliers and is preparing for the new season.
