Melania Trump’s statement includes a line about “the importance of responsible online behavior” – just 14 hours after her husband takes to Twitter to insult the intelligence of one of the nation’s most prominent African-American athletes
In his interview with Don Lemon, James said that sport had offered him the opportunity to meet people of different backgrounds and race, adding: “Sports has never been something that divides people. It’s always been something that brings someone together.
“He [Mr Trump] is dividing us and what I noticed over the last few months that he’s kinda used sport to divide us and that’s something I can’t relate to, because I know that sport was the first time I was ever around someone white.”
Mr Trump has taken a harsh stance on the ongoing debate over players in the National Football League (NFL) who refuse to stand for the national anthem in protest against racial injustice and police brutality.
He has repeatedly said that anyone who kneels during the anthem should be fired.
Interviewer Don Lemon criticised Mr Trump’s tweet, and responded by referring to the separation of child migrants from their parents: “Who’s the real dummy? A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?”
