DONALD Trump has taken a pot shot today at the LA Lakers basketball player Lebron James, saying he preferred Michael Jordan.
The US President, 72, questioned the athlete’s intelligence after the 33-year-old basketball player was interviewed by CNN’s Don Lemon and asked about Trump’s attacks on black players.

James accused the President of using sport as a way to “divide us”.
He added: “Sports has never been something that divides people. It’s always been something that brings someone together.”
Trump took to Twitter to write: “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!”
It is not the first time the two have locked horns.

James said: “Going to the White House was a great honour until you showed up!”
They have also clashed over his stance on American Football players kneeling during the national anthem.
