Hillary Clinton offered her support to NBA star LeBron James on Saturday after President Trump attacked him on Twitter, calling James a "world class athlete and a class act."

[post_ads]"[James] is a great family man, incredible ballplayer, gives back to his community, and isn't afraid to speak his mind," Clinton tweeted on Saturday.

"We need more like him in this world," she added.

Trump went after James in a tweet late Friday night, saying he was "just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon" who "made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do."

Lemon had interviewed James about the school for at-risk youth the NBA player is opening in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.


James was also critical of the president during the interview, saying Trump was using sports to "divide" the country.

Others have shown support for James since Trump's tweet: Michael Jordan, who the president said he liked, said the former Cleveland Cavaliers star is "doing an amazing job for his community."

First lady Melania Trump's spokeswoman said in a statement Saturday that "it looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation," adding that the first lady is "open" to visiting his new school.
