August 4, 2018 – President Trump took to Twitter to share his opinion of Don Lemon’s interview of LeBron James on CNN:
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!

It was quickly assumed that the “Mike” in question was Michael Jordan. In response, Jordan later told reporters:
“I support L.J. He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”
During the interview on CNN, Mr. James said conversations about race had “taken over” in part because “our president is kind of trying to divide us.”
“Kind of?” Mr. Lemon said, followed by a chuckle.
“He is,” Mr. James said. “He’s dividing us.”
