President Donald Trump weighed in on LeBron James' recent interview with CNN's Don Lemon, and also picked a side on the LeBron James-Michael Jordan debate.

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, [CNN anchor] Don Lemon," Trump tweeted. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!"

On Monday, James sat down for an interview to promote a new public school that his charitable foundation helped build. In the interview, James and Lemon talked about race, Trump and the state of the country.
