Melania hails LeBron James after Donald Trump Mocked NBA Star

Jordan said: "I support LeBron James".

"I support LeBron James", he said. "He's doing an awesome job for his community", the Chicago Bulls legend said.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize newly signed Laker LeBron James and the man who interviewed him on CNN, Don Lemon.

Trump's comments came four days after CNN's Don Lemon interviewed James on Monday.

Saturday Trump faced criticism by a number of athletes who came to James's defense, including former United Kingdom and U of L basketball stars.

First lady Melania Trump praised LeBron James less than a day after President Donald Trump lashed out at the National Basketball Association star on Twitter.

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

James himself steered clear of the matter on social media, on Saturday only tweeting a picture of students at his new school with the message: "Let's get it kids".

James had said in an interview that Mr Trump was divisive and had emboldened racists.

Swedish-flagged Flotilla Vessel Intercepted by Israel
The organisers of the flotilla said the boat, which was carrying medical supplies , was intercepted in worldwide waters. The boat and another vessel, which was intercepted by Israeli forces on Sunday, set sail to Gaza from Europe last week.

The First Lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham issued a statement saying, she'd be open to visiting his I Promise School adding that he's, "working to do good things".

CNN noted that Trump's pattern of attacking well-known African-Americans as having "low IQs" echoes the white nationalist view that blacks are genetically less intelligent than white folks.

Mr Trump's former Democratic rival Hillary Clinton backed Mr James as a "great family man" and "incredible ballplayer" who "gives back to his community".

"Sports has never been something that divides people", James said during the interview.

She also noted that Mrs Trump's Be Best initiative promoted responsible online behaviour, in perhaps another not so subtle dig at her husband. She is undeniably one of the most fashionable First Ladies, however, her presence is still a mystery.

Jordan refused the compliment Saturday.

Even the president's wife was supportive of James' work with children.

Meanwhile, Jordan and first lady Melania Trump have also weighed in on the public conversation, and she's not here for her husband's pettiness.
