Karl-Anthony Towns reacts to Donald Trump’s shot at LeBron James

Donald Trump's wife Melania Trump arrives to joint press conference in Helsinki Finland July,16,2018

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon", Trump tweeted.

LeBron James has made no efforts to hide his dislike for President Donald Trump.

"I like Mike!" Trump added, seemingly referencing basketball legend Michael Jordan, with whom James is often compared. "Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon". In his interview with Lemon, he said he'd consider running for president if he believed he was the only person who could stop Trump from being re-elected. The basketball star recently opened an I Promise School for low income and at-risk kids in OH, inspired by his own upbringing. Trump is travelling to OH on Saturday for a campaign rally.

"Who's the real dummy?" Trump puts children in cages, ' his colleague Joseph Flynn wrote.

James appeared to ignore the chaos surrounding him, and focused on his new school.

Towns responded to Trump telling him to "shut your damn mouth" and to maybe start to worry about Towns that need the help like Flint, Michigan. The two also occupy separate wings of the White House. After Trump rescinded his invitation to the Golden State Warriors, James called him a "bum".

'LeBron puts children through school.

"What I've noticed over the past few months", James told Lemon, "is [Trump has] kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to".

A number of athletes spoke out in support of James.

For those who complete the program, which has been operating for years, James has arranged for free tuition to the University of Akron starting in 2021.

This was all done with James' own money, too. But commenting on someone's intelligence, including his own, has always been a Trump trope.

But he also uses "stupid" - or variations thereof - as a favoured insult.

In September, after Trump called the National Football League players protests social injustice "sons of bitches" at a political rally, and rescinded a White House invitation to the NBA champion Golden State Warriors - even though the Warriors never planned to attend - James called Trump a "bum" on Twitter.
