He also opined that the president was "using sports to kinda divide us". "It's always been something that brings someone together". "But I think the president in charge now has given people - they don't care now, they throw it to your face", he said. This recent feud with the most powerful man in the world started when James accused Trump of dividing the nation through sports.

LeBron James has made the playoffs every year since the 2005-06 campaign.

James recently founded a new school for disadvantaged children.

He called Trump a "bum" last September after an invitation for the Golden State Warriors to come to the White House was rescinded.

On Monday, James was in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, to welcome children to his I Promise School, which was built as part of a partnership with the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron City Schools.

The "I like Mike" conclusion to the tweet was in reference to the debate over whether Michael Jordan or James should be considered the NBA's all-time greatest. "Sport has given me everything I could ever ask for". "I can't sit back and say nothing". Ben Simmons said James is "a smart dude (and one of the most thoughtful athletes we have).You're a constant embarrassment".

James has been critical of the president and his administration in the past, and his dislike of CNN has been well established.

US President Donald Trump has slammed National Basketball Association star LeBron James in a tweet.

Trump had no reaction to that tweet, and beat writer for Cleveland.com Joe Vardon - who has covered James extensively - suggested that the president choosing to respond on this occasion has some political reasoning.

Trump is traveling to OH on Saturday for a campaign rally.

Though, it appeared, at least at one point, that Trump was a big fan of King James.

Trump responded to that interview with a tweet-attack directed at both men.
