LeBron James puts in first workout in Lakers’ new facility

Michael Jordan says 'I support' LeBron James after Trump attack

Michael Jordan says 'I support' LeBron James after Trump attack

The Green Bay Packers legend made it clear that he was standing with LeBron James, who was the target of an attack by President Donald Trump last Friday night, essentially calling him stupid after he watched his interview on CNN with Don Lemon about his I Promise school. After Trump compared the Los Angeles Lakers star unfavourably to Michael Jordan, Jordan said "I support LJ. And just as she always has, the first lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today".

Noah has called out the president for having "a lot of time on his thumbs" and pointed out social media arguments with U.S. Senator Maxine Waters, Florida politician Frederica Wilson, CNN host Don Lemon and National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James. "That's not something I can relate to because I know that sport was the first time I was ever around someone white".

Earlier this week, James told CNN during an interview with Don Lemon that sport had offered him the opportunity to meet people of different backgrounds and race. "I like Mike", Trump tweeted, sparking immediate outrage from Hollywood and beyond.

BBC North America reporter Anthony Zurcher suggests the first lady's statement contains veiled criticism of her husband's tweet.

Ingraham targeted James, then a Cleveland Cavaliers player, for his critical comments about Trump, words she declared to be unintelligible.

However hard it is to believe that Ahmadinejad - the man who claimed no gay people existed in Iran - "loves all", Donald Trump can certainly unite some very unlikely allies against him. Is he revealing who we really are? "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", the president tweeted.

Friend or foe? Trump meets EU's Juncker amid trade war
In a tweet late Tuesday, Trump said both the United States and the European Union should drop all tariffs, barriers and subsidies. President Trump and European Commission President Juncker held a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

Only a couple more sleeps until we find out. James also drew solidarity from his fellow sports personalities.

Jordan, who rarely wades into the political fray, and other USA athletes rallied to James' defense on Saturday, praising him for his work in his community.

"This has now turned into something completely ridiculous - we're unable to have a conversation, so I'm just going to go to the next segment, OK?" the Fox News host said.

On Monday, Rodgers had a video released that, among other things, applauded the efforts of several National Football League players and what they were doing in their community.

James is an outspoken critic of the president. "Millions elected Trump to be their coach". "We got your back @KingJames Someone sure sound like they wish they was you", tweeted linebacker Bobby Wagner of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks.
