The current Commander-in-Chief took the time to tweet a dissing message about NBA basketball player LeBron James, 33, and CNN journalist Don Lemon, 52, on the night of August 3 after the two had an interview in which LeBron spoke his mind about Donald.

"I support LJ", Jordan said in a statement released Saturday by his publicist.

I support LJ. He's doing an unbelievable job for his community.

This week, LeBron James opened The I Promise School, a fully-funded public elementary school catering to 240 at-risk teenagers in Akron, Ohio.

In his interview with Lemon, he said he would consider running for president if he believed he was the only person who could stop Mr Trump from being re-elected.

Because Donald Trump mentioned the National Basketball Association legend and Charlotte Hornets coach Michael Jordan in the tweet - ending with "I like Mike!"

The President's tweet came after he watched CNN anchor/reporter Don Lemon interview James.

Melania Trump, though, was apparently focused on a different part of the Lemon-James conversation.

The sports commentator Bill Simmons tweeted: "LeBron is a smart dude (and one of the most thoughtful athletes we have) - this is a bullshit tweet and feels more than a little racist". His war of words with basketball superstar, LeBron James.

"We are in a position right now in America...where this race thing has taken over", James said. Trump's former rival Hillary Clinton backed James as a "great family man" and "incredible ballplayer" who "gives back to his community, and isn't afraid to speak his mind".

The statement notes that Melania has been promoting her Be Best campaign and talking to children about the "importance of responsible online behaviour".

The James-Trump feud has been brewing for months. Stephen Curry, who Mr. Trump claimed past year he disinvited from the White House, wrote "Keep doing you" with a link to James' interview. She was named one of the "100 Most Important Americans of the 20th Century" by Life magazine in 1990.
