Trump's comment sparked huge reaction on Twitter from James' backers. It's not that LeBron may choose to fire back (he has called the President a "bum" before but may well remain silent here), it's that the National Basketball Association fan base will nod in agreement if he or anyone else does take a shot at Trump. According to the LeBron James Foundation, the I Promise School integrates the STEM curriculum with the foundation's We Are Family philosophy to create a supportive environment for students and their families.
James did not hold back on his thoughts about Trump during his interview with Lemon.

During the sit-down, James spoke of sports as something that unites people, and added that the president was "using sports to kinda divide us". Last year, James called Trump a "bum" for uninviting Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry to the White House.
Carrie, who signed with the Browns as a free agent in March after four seasons with Oakland, said James' efforts lead him to want to do more. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!"
When Lemon pressed James if he would consider running for president, he eventually said, "Let's see first". "Sport has given me everything I could ever ask for". One, because I believe our president is trying to divide us.More news: Trump imposes sanctions over Turkey's detaining of minister
