Twitter, on Friday, erupted with rage and slammed President Donald Trump after he attacked basketball star LeBron James on Friday night over his appearance on CNN, suggesting that the star player was "dumb."

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do," Trump tweeted.

The Republican tweeted the remark after watching an interview between James and CNN host Don Lemon on Friday, which originally aired on Monday.

 



Trump ended his tweet with: "I like Mike!" in an apparent reference to the ongoing debate about who is the greatest National Basketball Association (NBA) player of all times, LeBron James or Michael Jordan.

James, during the CNN interview, had discussed various topics, including politics and accused Trump of enabling racists and using sports to divide the country. 

"I can't sit back and say nothing," James said during the interview.

Hundreds of Twitter users, shortly after the president's rant against the basketball stars, jumped to James' defense and also pointed out that the sports legend had recently opened a school for at-risk children in his hometown of Akron, in Ohio.
