Melania Trump Praises LeBron James After Donald Trump's Insults

Melania Trump has spoken out against her husband’s most recent attacks against a prominent African-American athlete. After President Donald Trump insulted NBA star LeBron James‘ intelligence following a CNN interview with Don Lemon, the First Lady came out to show her support of LeBron and the positive work he has been doing in his community.
While Melania could have remained silent, she responded to requests from reporters for comment and issued a lengthy statement that contradicts her husband’s rhetoric.
In her statement, Melania applauds LeBron, while also throwing perceived shade at her husband’s immature online behavior.
The statement through a spokeswoman reads:

“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. As you know, Mrs. Trump has traveled the country and world talking to children about their well-being, healthy living, and the importance of responsible online behavior with her Be Best initiative. Her platform centers around visiting organizations, hospitals and schools, and she would be open to visiting the I Promise School in Akron. “

We will have to see if LeBron takes the First Lady up on the offer, because he has previously said he would not be willing to meet with President Trump.
“I would never sit across from him. I’d sit across from Barack [Obama], though,” LeBron said in the CNN interview. “I don’t want to say ‘kind of.’ He’s dividing us. And what I’ve noticed over the last few months, he’s kinda used sport to divide us. And that’s something that I can’t relate to, because I know that sport was the first time I ever was around someone white.
“I got an opportunity to see them and learn about them and they got an opportunity to learn about me and we became very good friends. I was like, wow, this is all because of sports. Sports has never been something that divides people. It’s always been something that brings [people] together.”
It will be interesting to see what Donald Trump does now that LeBron has an ally in his wife.
