Michael Jordan tries to stay out of politics and the press as much as possible, but after President Trump attacked fellow basketball legend, Lebron James, Jordan released a rare official statement.
Two days ago, the President of the United States issued a scathing insult about journalist Don Lemon and NBA Star Lebron James, while ending his statement with the phrase, “I like Mike” (referring to Michael Jordan);
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 4, 2018
The tweet seemingly came after the president watched James’ interview last week with CNN’s Don Lemon, where James stated, “We are in a position in America where this race thing has taken over. One, because I believe our president is trying to divide us. He’s kind of used sports to divide us, and that’s something I can’t relate to.”
Yesterday, Charlotte Hornet’s owner and basketball legend Michael Jordan released a brief statement about the tweet, simply saying “I support LJ, He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”
On Monday of this week, Lebron James opened the I Promise School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio to serve low-income and at-risk students.
