Trump insults LeBron James on Twitter

In a tweet posted late Friday night, Trump criticized James for an interview he recently did with another prominent African American, CNN anchor Don Lemon.

In a public announcement at the school's opening, James says he wanted to build a school, "Because I know exactly what these 240 kids are going through...they're the reason why this school is here today". It's a disgrace. It's racist.

It's no secret that LeBron James and President Donald Trump don't see eye-to-eye, and that seems to have upset one of the two parties.

James did not hold back on his thoughts about Trump during his interview with Lemon.

LeBron James is the E.F. Hutton of modern basketball: When he speaks, young hoopers listen.

James has been clear in his feelings about the President for sometime now, most notably calling him a "bum" less than 11 months ago.

Recall that James called Trump a "bum" in a 2017 tweet after Trump uninvited the National Basketball Association champion Warriors to the White House because Stephen Curry decided he wouldn't attend.

"I think Paul did what was best for him", James said.

During the interview, James was asked about Trump, and said that the president was "using sports to kinda divide us".

As for George, James said he did not have "many" conversations about teaming up and that he supports his decision to stay in Oklahoma.

Mr. Trump has never before criticized James directly. CNN is also one of Mr. Trump's favorite foes.

On Monday, James was in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, to welcome children to his I Promise School, which was built as part of a partnership with the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron City Schools.

I could go on, but you get the point.

According to a Times of India report, the educational institution which has been named as the "I Promise School" will offer free uniforms, free tuition, free breakfast, lunch as well as snacks to the students.
