[USA], August 04 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump took a potshot at American basketball player LeBron James following latter's interview with CNN's Don Lemon.

Referring to the interviewer as the "dumbest man on television", Trump tweeted, "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!"

LeBron recently announced about his 'I Promise School', a public elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, for at-risk children. Lemon interviewed the NBA star for the same, confirmed The Hollywood Reporter.

During the interview, LeBron reiterated his disdain for the US President, saying, "What I've noticed over the past few months is that he's kinda used sports to divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to."

Last year, following his visit to the White House with other players including Steph Curry, LeBron tweeted, "You bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So, therefore, ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honour until you showed up!" (ANI)
