Even Melania Jumped To LeBron James' Defense After Trump's Latest Twitter Attack

President Donald Trump found himself to be the center of criticism again (surprise, surprise) after an insulting tweet about CNN anchor Don Lemon and NBA star and philanthropist LeBron James. 

The POTUS attacked both men's intelligence, something he has a habit of doing with people of color.

Here's what Trump said on Twitter:

The Twitter attack came after LeBron James announced the opening of his "I Promise School" in Akron, Ohio. 

The school's underlying mission is to provide students in Akron the tools they need to overcome the challenges of a low-income household.

But First Lady Melania Trump spoke out through her official spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, to share her admiration for what James did, instead of insults or scorn.

Grisham stated for the FLOTUS:

"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,"

The official statement continued to say that the First Lady might even want to see the new school.

 She tied her statement to Melania's "Be Best" campaign which focuses on the importance of social, emotional, and physical health for children.

Here is the full text via CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins:

People are applauding Melania's statement.

Melania's words fall among the many voices sharing their support for LeBron and all he is doing.

It's good to see at least one person in the White House showing support for programs that help children.
