First Lady Melania Trump spokeswoman: LeBron doing good things

Melania Trump has praised LeBron James for his charity work, saying she is open to visiting his new public school, hours after her husband Donald Trump questioned the National Basketball Association superstar's intelligence.

Trump has also repeatedly criticized Lemon, prompting CNN to issue a statement past year accusing the president of using social media to bully others.

Lemon responded to Trump's barb by writing on Twitter on Saturday morning, "Who's the real dummy?"

A spokeswoman for Melania Trump says it appears that LeBron James is "working to do good things" and that the first lady would be willing to visit the new school he opened in Ohio.

If President Trump, if he's the one who has the finger on the pulse of this country. Is this who we really are? ". "Let me not mince words here", Lemon said .

"He's doing an incredible job for his community", said Jordan, while the first lady said, "It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things".

"He's trying to divide our sport, but at the end of the day, sport is the reason why we all come together", James said. The School is a partnership between the LeBron James Family foundation and the Akron Public School and is created to serve Akron's most challenged students.

Since Mrs. Trump's initial comments about James, which she delivered through her spokesperson, a senior White House official has insisted that the First Lady was in no way picking sides by praising James for his charity work.

While speaking with Lemon, James also shared how sports opened him up to other people he would've interacted with.

James is considered by many to be the greatest player in basketball history, rivaled by Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan. James also said he has no interest in sitting down for a face-to-face meeting Trump.

Trump took to Twitter late Friday night to bash Lemon after his interview on Monday with James, and ended up slandering the celebrity athlete as well.

BBC North America reporter Anthony Zurcher suggests the first lady's statement contains veiled criticism of her husband's tweet. And I got an opportunity to see them and learn about them and they got an opportunity to learn about me and we became friends.

Indeed, this week's exchange is just the latest in a long-running feud between James and the president.
