Michael Jordan stands with LeBron James after Donald Trump's Twitter insults

Michael Jordan stands with LeBron James after Donald Trump's Twitter insults

The President appeared to be responding to an interview James gave to CNN's Don Lemon, which aired Friday night, in which the National Basketball Association superstar said he wouldn't sit down across from the President if he were given the opportunity.

Trump resorted to childish name-calling in a Friday evening tweet in which he slammed the intelligence of both James and CNN anchor Don Lemon. Shortly before midnight, he made his thoughts known on what he thought of the LeBron-Lemon conversation.

Other players from around the league, including Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns and Utah's Donovan Mitchell, came to James' defense on social media.

Apple Becomes First Public Trillion Dollar Company; Beats Amazon, Microsoft, And Google
According to investors, Apple's shares needed to be at $203.45 to push the company into the Trillion Dollar valuation. That's a far cry from Apple becoming some kind of poky utility, however.

It's clear Jordan doesn't appreciate Trump's support. "I like Mike!" -the 45 president garnered over 39 thousand re-tweets as well as a response from his preferred player Michael Jordan; who told NBC News, "I support L.J., he's doing an unbelievable job for his community".

"I know whoever wins this series, no one wants an invite", James said at the time. As that Ian bloke said, it's good to see that the cruel comments have backfired and actually raised the profile of James' good work.

Mrs. Trump has stood apart from her husband's views before.

China stands its ground after Trump amps up tariff threats
Trump has ultimately threatened tariffs on more than $500 billion in Chinese goods, covering virtually all US imports from China. The news about tariffs for China appeared shortly before the start of the negotiations round between the major world economies.

The statement from Stephanie Grisham said, "It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation". The statement doesn't criticise the president. 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. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not return a request for comment, nor did James' agency Klutch Sports Group. But even some Trump allies chided the remark. And I realized "this is all because of sports'". The school opened with a group of third- and fourth-graders, but will expand to serve first through eighth grades by 2022.
