The current Commander-in-Chief took the time to tweet a dissing message about NBA basketball player LeBron James, 33, and CNN journalist Don Lemon, 52, on the night of August 3 after the two had an interview in which LeBron spoke his mind about Donald.
"He's doing an wonderful job for his community", Jordan, now owner of the National Basketball Association's Charlotte Hornets, told NBC News through a spokesperson.
Last night Donald Trump used his Twitter platform to deflect social commentary made by LeBron James while he conversed with Don Lemon of CNN.
And in an interview with CNN this week, James told Lemon that Trump was "trying to divide our sport, but at the end of the day, sport is the reason why we all come together".
In his tweet, Trump insulted Lemon and then said that it's "not easy" to make James look smart.
The "I like Mike" conclusion to the tweet was in reference to the debate over whether Michael Jordan or James should be considered the NBA's all-time greatest.
American football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe tweeted: "It should be beneath the dignity of a sitting United States president to take racist shots at Don Lemon and LeBron James".
Of course, the tweet comes on the heels of a monumental week for James.
Trump's tweet also contradicted past statements from the president, in which he has repeatedly said he no longer watches CNN, which he has decried as "Fake News".
Don Lemon responded by saying, "Who's the real dummy?"
President Donald Trump is turning his wrath on basketball superstar LeBron James.
Trump may have had LeBron - Ohio's favorite son - on his mind as he was set to travel to The Buckeye State on Saturday - to hold a rally for state Sen. A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?
James added that, "sports has never been something that divides people". Trump, meanwhile, is headed to OH, as he is set to hold a "Make America Great Again" rally in Lewis Center, just north of Columbus, on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
James had just opened a school for underprivileged children in Ohio.
