Mrs. Trump spokeswoman: LeBron doing good things

"I support LJ. He's doing an incredible job for his community", Jordan said in a statement provided to The Washington Post by a spokesperson. "He is doing an awesome job for his community".

National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James has just recently welcomed his "I Promise" inaugural class-a public, non-charter school for at-risk kids in Akron, Ohio, created via the LeBron James Family Foundation's partnership with Akron Public School District.

This is presumably in retaliation to James' comments in a CNN interview with Don Lemon, during which he stated he would not sit across from Trump, but would sit across from former president Barack Obama.

CNN's Don Lemon scored an exclusive interview with hoops king LeBron James. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump said. Trump added that he apparently prefers Michael Jordan to LeBron James.

If anyone was wondering where Donald Trump might land on the LeBron vs. Jordan debate, a tweet of his from Friday night might clear it up. Lemon responded on Saturday morning and he wasn't afraid to throw some serious shade.

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for First Lady Melania Trump Saturday said it appears James is "working to do good things" and that she would be willing to visit the new school he opened in Ohio. When Lemon asked James what he would say to Trump if he ever had the chance to sit across from him, James replied, "I would never sit across from him".

California fights back against EPA proposals on vehicles
California and 16 other states filed suit over the fuel efficiency standards in May, anticipating the new regulation. That calculation could change next year depending on the outcome of the November midterm election.

It seems everyone from Melania Trump, to top Republicans and Jordan himself have come out to support James.

Disagree with Donald Trump and join the long line of noble citizens on his Enemies List. a list on which it is an honor to be included.

Of course, the tweet comes on the heels of a monumental week for James.

Don Lemon responded by saying, "Who's the real dummy?" Students' parents receive GED classes and job placement assistance, and if the student completes the school program and graduates from high school, James will cover their full tuition at the University of Akron. The president also said he preferred Michael Jordan. Not one word or follow-up that takes issue with anything either man has actually said.

Before entering politics, Trump frequently praised James and his own family tried to recruit him to the New York Knicks in 2010. Trump tweeted his LeBron venom a day before making a trip to, you guessed it, Ohio.
