Air Jordan relayed his statement to NBC news in response to receiving unwanted attention from the President at the tail end of his Tweet: "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do". I like Mike!' Trump posted on Friday evening, appearing to reference Michael Jordan.

James had criticised Trump for using sport to divide the country. "He's doing an incredible job for his community", Jordan said in a statement to The Associated Press through his representative via text Saturday.

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". 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".

Many tweeters suggested that Trump may have held out from criticising James until he moved away from OH, which is a crucial swing state for the President. 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. "LeBron just pledged millions for a school for underprivileged kids". Trump puts children in cages, ' his colleague Joseph Flynn wrote.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request to clarify Trump's remarks.

Trump blasted James after seemingly watching an interview the former Cleveland Cavaliers star did earlier in the week with CNN anchor Don Lemon in which he deemed Trump divisive.

'Pop quiz - Besides all being smarter & better in every way than he is, what else do they have in common?

Trump, meanwhile, is headed to OH, as he is set to hold a "Make America Great Again" rally in Lewis Center, just north of Columbus, on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

"We don't care what the world around us is thinking", Klopp said. "We have the highest ambitions, 100 percent". Lazar Markovic has 12-months left on his contract and could be on the move to a Turkish or Greek club.

CNN's Lemon and Don Rather have since responded to the inflammatory remarks by Trump, Rather calling the president a disgrace and Lemon questioning who the "real dummy" is.

"Even POTUS" supporters found the tweet to be in bad taste.

In the insanely long list of Kobe Bryant highlight videos, this one gets played as much as nearly any: A 2010 regular season game against Orlando when Matt Barnes is inbounding the ball, does a ball-fake inches from Kobe's face, and Bryant doesn't flinch.

You can see Trump's tweet, below. "I like Mike!" Here, Trump's referring to another all-time National Basketball Association great, Michael Jordan.

"What I've noticed over the past few months [is] he's kind of used sports to kind of divide us", James told CNN's Don Lemon on Monday.

He also said he might consider running for office if someone said to him he was the only person and that Trump would win if he didn't step up.

During the interview, James and Lemon toured the school and discussed sports, politics and race relations.
