Donald Trump continues to muddy the waters and his borderline racist messaging over LeBron James opening up a school and doing better for the community.

During the tweet in which he went after CNN host Don Lemon and James after he opened up a new school, the President of United States decided to say "I like Mike." The reaction to the following comments, "what I've noticed over the past few months, he's kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to."

This weekend, Michael Jordan decided to release a statement supporting the Los Angeles Lakers forward in which he said "I support LJ. He's doing an amazing job for his community" according to Geoff Bennett of NBC News.

It's a rare semi-political stance for Jordan who is not known to speak on issues involving the community.
