President Donald Trump criticized LeBron James on Twitter Friday night.
In the tweet above he said, "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!" The president's teet came in response to comments LeBron had made about Trump, saying that he will never sit face to face with the president. Some reporters pointed out that the attacks on Lebron were unfair, especially considering he just donated $50 million to build a school for at-risk students.
Also some people pointed that Trump was a huge Lebron fan in the past and had tweeted about it. Even Melania Trump issued a statement in favor of LeBron...
But the president felt attacked and responded, and that's his style... What do you think? Did the president do the right thing with that tweet?

Melania Trump's statement includes a line about “the importance of responsible online behavior” - just 14 hours after her husband takes to Twitter to insult the intelligence of one of the nation’s most prominent African-American athletes https://t.co/4OUpvcO2jc— Anthony Zurcher (@awzurcher) August 4, 2018
