Los Angeles’ newest celebrity was interviewed by CNN’s Don Lemon on Monday after his LeBron James Family Foundation and the Akron Public Schools launched a new elementary school for at-risk children in his hometown.
The “I Promise School,” among other things, focuses on accelerated learning, provides job placement for parents, has an on-site food bank, supports children with stress from economic causes, gives every kid a bike to escape dangerous parts of town, and offers free colelge tuition to the University of Akron to all graduates beginning in 2021.
In the interview, James discussed the impact of sports and said he felt Trump was “using sports to kinda divide us.”
“Sports have never been something that divides people,” James told Lemon. “It’s always been something that brings someone together.”
Trump’s tweet came four days after the interview originally aired on CNN. It also appears as though Trump took Michael Jordan’s side in the Lebron vs. Jordan debate saying, “I like Mike!”
Though, it appeared, at least at one point, that Trump was a big fan of King James.
