Michael Jordan on Saturday responded to the latest dust-up between President Trump and LeBron James via a statement to NBC News.

“I support LJ. He’s doing an amazing job for his community,” Jordan said through a spokesperson.

After James told CNN’s Don Lemon that Trump was “using sports to divide” people, the president shot back on Twitter late Friday night. (RELATED: Trump Smacks LeBron, CNN’s Don Lemon As ‘Dumbest Man On Television’)

“I like Mike!” Trump exclaimed after saying that the “dumbest man on television” “made LeBron look smart.”

Which, for a time, led journalists to speculate (some jokingly) about the identity of the “Mike” that Trump was referring to.
