That echoed comments he made in January that Trump had "given people and racism... an opportunity to be out and outspoken without fear".

James addressed various topics during his interview with Lemon, including politics, saying Trump has used athletics and athletes to split up the country.

James was interviewed by Lemon Monday, after James' foundation and the Akron (Ohio) Public Schools launched a new elementary school for at-risk children. Tomorrow is going to be one of the greatest moments (if not the greatest) of my life when we open the #IPROMISE School.

James said his involvement in sports was the first time "I ever was around someone white", adding, "And I got an opportunity to see them and learn about them and they got an opportunity to learn about me, and we became very good friends". Last September, James took to Twitter to drag the president for lashing out at Warriors guard Steph Curry for refusing to visit the White House after winning the championship.

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.

Trump has been strongly critical of the NFL for failing to punish players who kneel during the national anthem as a form of protest. In a 2013 tweet, Trump wrote, "Lebron is a great player and a great guy!"

Early this year, a federal court approved a $25 million settlement for former students of Trump University, who claimed the school was a bait-and-switch operation that did not offer the real estate industry insights it promised. Lemon tweeted. "A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?" "I believe there's someone else out there".

James had just opened a school for underprivileged children in Ohio. By the way, all-around he's better than Michael Jordan.

As was noted on Twitter Saturday morning, Lemon and James are two successful and respected African-American men who have risen in their respective careers.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham, a vocal Trump supporter, called James and fellow basketball star Kevin Durant ignorant and suggested they "shut up and dribble".
