The tweet from Trump, which many on social media have pointed out has racial undertones, comes on the heels of the newly minted member of the Los Angeles Lakers criticizing the reality television star during an interview with Don Lemon on CNN. LeBron was on the network to discuss his recently opened I Promise School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.
"We are in a position right now in America [...] where this race thing has taken over, one because I believe our president is kind of trying to divide us," James told Lemon during the interview.
Making reference to the NFL anthem protests, James continued: "He's dividing us and what I've noticed over the last few months [...] he's kinda used sport to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to because I know that sport was the first time I ever was around someone white and I got the opportunity to see them and learn about them and they got an opportunity to learn about me and we became very good friends."
