LeBron James (@KingJames) says Trump's trying to use sport to divide people, but he believes it brings people together.

In the interview, James said he "would never sit across" from Trump, though he would talk to former President Barack Obama.

James's last message was about his newly completed I Promise School in Akron, a public and nonprofit partnership created to help underserved kids in his OH hometown. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump tweeted.

Mr. Trump also went after Lemon, calling him the "dumbest man on television".

"I like Mike!" he wrote.

The LeBron James-Michael Jordan debate has officially reached the Oval Office, though President Donald Trump doesn't seem to be making his choice based on basketball reasons.

Apple becomes first-ever company valued at $1 trillion
Other companies have come close to the mark, but no public United States company has hit a $1 trillion valuation. A company's market cap is calculated by multiplying the number of shares outstanding by its stock's share price.

The interview also touched some on Donald Trump and his influence, with LeBron saying he did not agree with how the president used sports to divide Americans. The school opened with a group of third- and fourth-graders, but will expand to serve first through eighth grades by 2022.

The four-time NBA MVP, 33, branded the USA leader " a bum" after he rescinded an invitation for NBA champions the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House previous year, amid doubts over whether some players - including star man Stephen Curry - would attend.

The school, which is a joint effort of the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools, will benefit at-risk children.

Other NBA players came to James' defense.

Trump and James have also clashed over the National Football League anthem protests over perceived racial injustice in the US. Minnesota center Karl Anthony Towns questioned why Trump was using his time to tweet about this instead of addressing the water issues in Flint, MI. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not return a request for comment, nor did James's agency Klutch Sports Group.

James, who has spent most of his career playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, is a titan in his home state, and it's hard to imagine a gesture more likely to alienate voters there than insulting him.
