Melania Trump Praises LeBron James After Donald Trump's Twitter Attack

May JohnsonAug 08, 2018

Sen. Robert Menendez used Trump's attack on LeBron James following the National Basketball Association star's appearance on CNN as a jumping off point to call attention to how Trump views minorities.

Basketball legend Michael Jordon, to whom Trump's tweet presumably referred, also expressed support for James over the weekend. "He's doing an fantastic job for this community".

In the interview, LeBron James is asked about his opinions of President Donald Trump.

Melania's bold comments came just one day after senior aide Reagan Hedlund, who helped to develop the "Be Best" anti-bullying initiative, was fired.

A surprising supporter of James was Trump's wife, Melania, who issued a statement following her husband's tweet.

Maybe watching him engage in a Twitter feud with Trump isn't the battle we envisioned, but it would certainly entertain the sports world.

The public feud between King James and the imperious President is on one level a personal and even ideological clash between two of the richest, most famous entertainers in American life whose outsize images outshine the confines of the roles they now play. "I support LJ", Jordan, now the owner of the NBA's Charlotte Hornets, said in a statement released through his publicist.

Players to Watch in the WGC Bridgestone Invitational
Woods is playing the opening rounds of this tournament with a two-time victor this season, Jason Day . England's Justin Rose is also likely to be in contention, despite never having won the event.

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah has pleaded with U.S. President Donald Trump to stop bickering with famous black people on Twitter.

The "I Promise" public school in Akron, which opened last week, will offer classes for "at-risk" students in the third and fourth grades and add first and second grades the following year, the foundation website said. "Most of America, anyway, not all of America". "LeBron just pledged millions for a school for underprivileged kids". "But because of how important it is for each of us to stand up for what is right and what is decent, I'm going to tell you exactly how I feel, starting right now".

"President Trump has called out by name ..."

Trump brought up another regular target of scorn, calling Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat who has lashed out at the president, "an extremely low IQ person". "The people of color who are attacked by their fellow citizens, who feel emboldened to be publicly racist, because the president is".

So let me get this straight: Flint, MI has dirty water still, but you anxious about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?

James appeared to ignore the chaos surrounding him on Saturday, and focused on his new school. "Because I have to call out the lies, or the misstatements, or when he gets something wrong, or when he does something insane, or when he tweets something that's just beyond the pale".
