"I support LJ. He's doing an wonderful job for his community", Jordan told NBC News through a spokesperson.

This week, LeBron James opened The I Promise School, a fully-funded public elementary school catering to 240 at-risk teenagers in Akron, Ohio. He called Lemon "the dumbest man on television" and said he "made Lebron [sic] look smart, which isn't easy to do". "We could not be more proud to have LeBron James as part of our Lakers family", Buss said in a released statement on behalf of the team.

Jordan's comments come in after Trump dragged his name into his heated exchange with James, saying that: "I like Mike".

James was insulted by President Donald Trump on Twitter Friday night following a re-airing of an interview with CNN.

CNN anchor Don Lemon replied to Mr Trump's tweet, asking: "Who's the real dummy?"

"Is", James confirmed. "I don't want to say kind of".

The four-time NBA MVP, 33, branded the U.S. leader " a bum" after he rescinded an invitation for NBA champions the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House a year ago, amid doubts over whether some players - including star man Stephen Curry - would attend.

OH governor John Kasich, a Republican like Trump, and former newscaster Dan Rather also criticized the President's tweet about James.

Mr. Trump has never before criticized James directly.

Trump and James have long traded jibes on social media. "Maybe you'd like to talk about the 160,000 kids who skip school every day for fear of being bullied, or that 280,000 students are physically attacked in schools every month", Grisham told CNN.

The statement notes that Melania has been promoting her Be Best campaign and talking to children about the "importance of responsible online behaviour". Their history includes trading barbs when Trump revoked an invitation to the White House for the Warriors. In 2013, Trump tweeted that he thought James was a "great player and a great guy", and sent another congratulating the National Basketball Association star on winning at the ESPYS. However, he's keeping busy with much more important things than petty Twitter wars.
