This week, LeBron Jamesopened The I Promise School, a fully-funded public elementary school catering to 240 at-risk teenagers in Akron, Ohio. In the tweet, Trump insults Lemon's and James' intelligence and ends it by saying, "I like Mike!"
Jordan actually responded to the president's tweet in a statement to the Associated Press. In his interview with Lemon, he said he'd consider running for president if he believed he was the only person who could stop Trump from being re-elected. Laker fans who spoke with Eyewitness News also felt the same way, often mentioning the school James opened and how he's impacted those kids' lives.
Though Jordan hasn't played in years, fans have endlessly argued about which athlete is better on the pro-basketball court - James or Jordan. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump said on Twitter shortly before midnight on Friday, twice misspelling the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player's name. Just about more philanthropic work Trump has ever done combined. In September 2017, James called Trump a bum after he rescinded an invitation for the Golden State Warriors to celebrate their championship with a visit to the White House.
Of course, the tweet comes on the heels of a monumental week for James.

Only a day before the First Lady's glowing endorsement of James, President Trump criticized the basketball legend via Twitter.
"He is an incredibly thoughtful and intelligent leader and clearly appreciates the power that sports has to unite communities and inspire the world to be a better place", Buss said in a separate statement Saturday.
The I Promise School is the culmination of almost a decade of work by James' foundation, with its focus on educating children from challenging situations and backgrounds. James carefully dodged the question, but when asked what he would say if someone told him, "If you don't run, Trump's going to win", James responded with, "Well, in that case, I may [run]", James said.
Trumps tweet on Friday night drew accusations of racism because Lemon and James are black men and had been discussing Trumps previous attacks on black athletes in the interview.
The First Lady wasn't as combative with James.
