Melania Trump and Hillary Clinton praise LeBron James after Donald Trump’s slam

LeBron James speaks at a news conference after the opening ceremony for the I Promise School in Akron Ohio Monday

"He's doing an incredible job for his community", Jordan, now owner of the National Basketball Association's Charlotte Hornets, told NBC News through a spokesperson.

Melania Trump's spokeswoman said the first lady is "open to visiting" basketball star LeBron James's new $8 million school in OH for low-income and at-risk students, after the president derided James's intelligence on Twitter.

Donald Trump's tweet calling LeBron James and Don Lemon dumb and dumber did not go over well in the sports and political world, eliciting strong reactions on social media.

Ahmadinejad told Trump he should "love all" instead of comparing basketball greats James and Michael Jordan.

If anyone was wondering where Donald Trump might land on the LeBron vs. Jordan debate, a tweet of his from Friday night might clear it up.

James appeared on CNN Monday in an interview with Don Lemon which was re-aired Friday night.

In this July 30, 2018 file photo, LeBron James listens to a question at a news conference after the opening ceremony for the I Promise School in Akron, Ohio. James also said that he'd "never" sit down for a meeting with Trump. He referenced Trump's reaction to National Football League players' protests of police brutality and racial injustice and the decision by his rival, Golden State Warriros star Steph Curry, to skip a White House visit.

Along with James and Jordan, Ahmadinejad's tweet mention Denver Nuggets player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, a player who has been outspoken about his Muslim faith. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", the president tweeted.

James has always been critical of Trump.

Michael Jordan has been criticized throughout his NBA career and time as an owner for not using his voice to raise more awareness to important things other than basketball.

"Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!" She was named one of the "100 Most Important Americans of the 20th Century" by Life magazine in 1990. "A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?"

The LeBron James Family Foundation partnered with Akron Public Schools to design the school for students in the area who come from hard circumstances.
