Lemon asked James if he had any aspirations of running for office. His tweet called Lemon the "the dumbest man on television", and then said Lemon "made LeBron look smart, which isn't easy to do". I believe he uses anything that is popular to try and negate people from thinking about the positive things they could be doing and try and get on their minds.

Earlier this month LeBron James made a stir in the news for his choice to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers.

We will update this story if the tweet storm continues.

The Los Angeles Lakers star also said that he would not visit the White House if he won an National Basketball Association championship as long as Trump is president.

James also mentioned Colin Kaepernick, who was targeted by Trump for his protests over racial injustice by kneeling during the anthem.

"(Trump) kinda used sports to kinda divide us", James told Lemon in their sitdown.

On Monday, James spoke at lengths about the President, race and politics in a wide-ranging interview which aired just hours after opening his new I Promise School in Akron, Ohio.

That campaign appearance probably turned the tide, as Trump didn't always feel so strongly against James.

Incidentally, prior to his criticism of James, Trump retweeted a quote from Pastor Darrell Scott calling Trump "the most pro-black president that we've had in our lifetime". "And I was like, 'Oh wow, this is all because of sports'". "And when they walk through that door, I hope they know that someone cares".

For James, however, this launch is not just about cementing his legacy, but also about using his huge wealth and privilege to give back to the community that raised him.

"If someone tried to recruit a LeBron to run for president, they said, 'Listen, they've got no one, if you don't run, Trump's going to win, ' would you run?"

As of late Friday night, James had not responded to the president's tweet.
