Michael Jordan Responds to Trump’s Tweet Attacking LeBron and Invoking Him: ‘I Support LJ’

“I support LJ. He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”

James, of course, opened the I PROMISE school this week and has been applauded by, well, pretty much everyone for making this major commitment to helping underprivileged kids.

Right now James himself has tweeted since the President’s insult last night, but so far he appears to just be ignoring Trump:
