President Donald Trump used the debate over Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James to take another shot at the four-time NBA MVP on Twitter.
After James was interviewed by CNN’s Don Lemon on Friday, Trump offered this message on social media:
Trump’s latest dig at James comes after the Los Angeles Lakers star told Lemon the president was using sports to create a divide in the country:
“I think athletics are important, but also their mind. When you’re part of sports, it just brings so much camaraderie and so much fun. We are in a position right now, in America, more importantly, where this whole race thing has taken over. One, because I believe our president is kinda trying to divide us. He is. I don’t want to say kinda. He’s dividing us, and what I’ve noticed over the last few months is that he’s kind of used sport to kind of divide us.”
James also used Twitter to call Trump a “bum” last September after the president wrote he was withdrawing the Golden State Warriors’ invitation to visit the White House when Stephen Curry said he didn’t want to attend if the team went to Washington, D.C.
