Michael Jordan says "I support LeBron James" after Trump insult

Others took aim at Trump's controversial immigration policy separating migrant children from their detained families, which saw many minors reportedly held in cages at border facilities. But facts don't seem to bother this President.

There he goes again, Trump weaponizing sports to divide the country that he leads.

James just signed with the Los Angeles Lakers (leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to do so) and is considered the greatest player now active. Jordan's now his guy.

"I remember sound bites from her when her husband was a then candidate saying racist things, bigoted things, saying misogynistic things, and she stood by him then", Cross said.

CNN also responded to Trump on its public relations Twitter with a dig at Trump's claim that he never watches the network. But if that's the case, shouldn't politicians just concern themselves with politics?

By late Saturday morning, the president had moved on, and was wishing the Coast Guard a happy birthday on Twitter. Some outspoken critics denounced Trump's tweet as another display of racism by the President.

National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan chimed in via a statement saying, "I support LJ. Because I know that sport was the first time I ever was around someone white". "I don't want my future kids growing up in a world where two Black men, accomplished in their field, are called dumb because they disagree with your views".

James appeared on CNN Monday in an interview with Don Lemon which was re-aired Friday night. "It's always been something that brings someone together".

Another person wrote: "Trump insulting LeBron the same week that he opened a school created to support at-risk students is peak disgusting Trump".

Following the airing of the interview, the President insulted James and interviewer Don Lemon in a series of tweets.

Don Lemon also added: "Who's the real dummy?"

Referencing the James interview as well as the water-safety crisis in Flint, Mich., NBA player Karl-Anthony Towns tweeted: "So let me get this straight: Flint, MI has dirty water still, but you're anxious about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?" "#BeBest." James hasn't responded to Trump's tweet.

And so, a miffed Trump fired back.
