And in the waning hours of Friday night, Trump took to his favorite medium and attacked James's intelligence after the National Basketball Association star told CNN's Don Lemon the president sought to divide the country by using sports as a wedge. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do".

Trump's tweet came after James said he thought Trump was trying to divide people using sports. "It's always been something that brings someone together".

In a segment aired on CNN, James was asked if he would ever sit down with Mr Trump. James also talked about social issues and Trump's comments about sports in the past.

"Well, in that case, I may", James said.

The basketball player appeared at a rally for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign in his home state of OH, a critical swing state during the election that Trump ended up carrying.

James explained why he called Trump a "bum" on his Twitter account.

The commission postponed announcing results of Monday's tightly fought presidential race, pitting Mr Mnangagwa against Mr Chamisa. A credible vote is crucial to the lifting of worldwide sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe so that its collapsed economy can recover.

Trump and Junker pull back from trade war
European countries are also utterly devoted to one of the biggest barriers in EU-U.S. trade: geographical indications. The trade disputes are reducing sales of US farm products overseas and sending the prices of those products lower.

James gave the interview in large part to tout a new elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

President Donald Trump attacked Ohio's favorite son, LeBron James, on Friday night, questioning his intelligence just a day before he's set to hold a rally in the state.

But the best laugh was reserved for the man who conducted the LeBron interview, suffering the worst of Trump's Twitter jab.

James has also enjoyed support from Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, who tweeted Saturday: "It should be beneath the dignity of a sitting POTUS to take racist shots at D. Lemon and Lebron James". But instead of praising an athletic icon for opening a school, Trump basically called James a dummy. "#BeBest." James hasn't responded to Trump's tweet. Donald first revoked his invitation to player Stephen Curry after he said he didn't want to go because of Donald.

Early this year, a federal court approved a $25 million settlement for former students of Trump University, who claimed the school was a bait-and-switch operation that did not offer the real estate industry insights it promised.
