Dan Rather blasts Trump for ‘racist’ criticism of Le Bron James Don Lemon

Trump traveled to a high school north of Columbus for a political rally Saturday night.

"The network's communications team responded to Trump's tweet, suggesting that if Trump was watching CNN, it must have been because first lady Melania Trump was choosing the channel", the Hill reported.

"We are in a position in America where this race thing has taken over", James said Monday in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon.

James said he chose to open the school, located down the street from his high school, because he knows exactly what young students are going through.

Many, including professional athletes and the Republican governor of OH, were critical of Trump's statements.

This week, LeBron James opened The I Promise School, a fully-funded public elementary school catering to 240 at-risk teenagers in Akron, Ohio.

The former hardline leader is one of many high-profile figures including first lady Melania Trump who have condemned the president's Twitter attack on James after he was criticized by the National Basketball Association star in a CNN interview Friday. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do".

She did not mention her husband.

No date has yet been set for protests announced over the weekend by parties including the PML-N. "I fully agree with it". The ruling Pakistan Muslim League (PML) came in second with 64 seats and the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) won 43.

Not only has Michael Jordan since backed LeBron, but even Melania is coming to Bron's aide.

In the interview, James also talked about Donald Trump, saying he feels like the U.S president is trying to use sports to divide America.

"I hate that Trump tweet about LeBron so much but I'm still laughing at the "I like Mike" part", said user @BrettRasdall. "He is doing an fantastic job for his community".

President Donald Trump is turning his wrath on basketball superstar LeBron James. I like Mike!' Trump tweeted, most likely referring to Michael Jordan.

Indeed, this week's exchange is just the latest in a long-running feud between James and the president.

During the interview, James shared his thoughts on Trump and how his policies and behavior has drawn a wedge between Americans, especially when it comes to sports.
