The endorsements for LeBron James continue to pile up after President Donald Trump's criticism of the Los Angeles Lakers star. "Who's the real dummy?", the CNN anchor tweeted Saturday. "Her platform centers around visiting organizations, hospitals and schools, and she would be open to visiting the I Promise School in Akron".

Attacking Mr Trump, James later tweeted: "U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!" A month later, during another instance of salacious headlines, she opted to go solo prior to departing for a trip with her husband. Laker fans who spoke with Eyewitness News also felt the same way, often mentioning the school James opened and how he's impacted those kids' lives. "Trump was unswayed by James" charity, saying it was hard to make "LeBron look smart". Trump's former rival Hillary Clinton backed James as a "great family man" and "incredible ballplayer" who "gives back to his community, and isn't afraid to speak his mind".

James, for his part, in his first comment since the insult, tweeted a celebration of his new school instead of responding directly to Trump.

James had just opened a school for underprivileged children in Ohio. In the interview, LeBron expressed his belief that Donald was using sports to divide people, as he's done in the past, and it didn't take long for Donald to strike back with a negative response. He called the president a "bum" previous year, after Trump disinvited Stephen Curry from visiting the White House, though it's not clear that an invitation was ever formally extended to Curry and his Golden State Warrior teammates.
