WHITE HOUSE DRAMA

Melania Trump Not in Lockstep with the President on LeBron James

The Trump household seems to be in disagreement on the value of LeBron James' public contributions. First Lady Melania Trump commended the athlete’s charity work hours after her husband lambasted him on Twitter. “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,” Melania Trump’s spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said in a statement Saturday. Grisham added that the first lady would consider visiting a school James is opening for underprivileged children in Akron, Ohio. The president criticized James on Twitter after the NBA megastar said in an interview that Donald Trump was using sports to divide the country. “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” the president tweeted.
