Donald Trump Attacks LeBron James During Late Night Twitter Rant


US President Donald Trump has once again shown us why he is so divisive as a national leader, attacking LeBron James on Twitter during a late night rant for an interview James did with CNN's Don Lemon.

During the interview, Lemon asked James about Trump calling out black athletes such as NFL player Colin Kaepernick, and responded almost as professionally as possible.

"[Trump is] using sports to kinda divide us ... Sports has never been something that divides people. It’s always been something that brings someone together”.

Even though it was almost midnight US time, Trump immediately went to Twitter to call out both Lemon and LeBron, questioning James' intelligence.

Trump even sides with 'Mike' -- AKA Michael Jordan -- in the tweet to further oppose James.

Now a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, James has made his position on Donald Trump clear ever since he was elected, as the pair have come to butt heads on more than one occasion, most notably regarding Trump uninviting the NBA champion Golden State Warriors from the White House, to which James tweeted: "U bum! Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

You can be sure that the two are bound to come to blows again in the future, at least for as long as Trump is in office.
