AFTER DONALD Trump's nasty comments directed towards LeBron James and insulting his intelligence, Michael Jordan has defended the LA Laker against the US President.

A spokesperson for M.J told Buzzfeed News: “I support L.J. He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”

Trump tweeted, “I like Mike!” in an attempt to insert his thoughts on the ongoing conversations about Jordan and James’ athletic legacies. Other players like Steph Curry, Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal and Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell also spoke out about Trump’s comments about James.

The amazing work Jordan referred to in his statement is directed towards James’ I Promise school opened earlier this week.

Even Trump's wife, first lady Melania Trump has distanced herself from her husband regarding his comments towards the Cleveland native.

“It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today,” spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said.
