Jazz's Donovan Mitchell fires back on Twitter after Trump insults LeBron James

And this time, following an interview about the new "I Promise' public school James opened for underprivileged kids in Akron, the President decided was the time to attack James". In June, James said of Trump that "it's a lot of things that we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he's for".

Donald Trump picked an odd time to weigh in on the Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James debate.

The CNN interview aired on Monday, after James opened his school for disadvantaged children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

In the same interview, James was asked by Lemon what he would like to say to Trump if he were seated with them.

Don Lemon responded by saying, "Who's the real dummy?"

Lemon, meanwhile, used his "CNN Tonight" show last Friday to say that Trump's presidency "can be defined by lies". "I like Mike!", Donald's highly opinionated tweet read.

The network's PR and communications Twitter feed invoked first lady Melania Trump to hit back at the president. In a 2013 tweet, Trump wrote, "Lebron is a great player and a great guy!"

In the interview, James said he "would never sit across" from Trump, though he would talk to former President Barack Obama. Most see Trump's racism again rising to the top. 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.

James announced last month that he would soon leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for a second time, this time to play with the Los Angeles Lakers.

James also referred to Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, who said he wouldn't visit the White House after his team won the championship, prompting the president to disinvite the team.

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. "This tweet is immature and offensive I would like to know why he considers these two successful black men "dumb".
