First Lady Melania Trump extended an olive branch to NBA superstar LeBron James, hours after President Donald Trump insulted his lack of intelligence in a tweet late Friday.

LeBron James

Mrs. Trump's spokeswoman released a statement on Saturday from the First Lady complimenting James on opening a school for at-risk youth in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. The school offers 240 3rd and 4th graders free breakfast, lunch and snacks, free bicycles and helmets, free clothing, a food pantry and free tuition to college if they graduate.

"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 statement read.

Mrs. Trump is open to visiting James's 'I Promise school' in Akron to meet the children in the very near future.

"Her platform centers around visiting organizations, hospitals and schools, and she would be open to visiting the ‘I Promise School’ in Akron," the First lady’s spokeswoman said.

The statement was issued as furious left-wing news outlets condemned Trump for attacking yet another high-profile Black man on Twitter.com.

After apparently watching Don Lemon's interview with James on CNN, Trump tweeted: “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”.

The last sentence was in reference to the ongoing debate over the NBA's g.o.a.t (greatest of all time). Trump chose NBA legend Michael Jordan over James.

Mrs. Trump has previously disagreed with her husband's spontaneous Twitter rants. She has attempted to curtail his tweeting which often conflicts with her 'Be Best' initiative to combat cyberbullying.

Trump's supporters and critics agree that Trump attacking James just days after he opened his elementary school for academically challenged youth was the worst possible timing.

  • Quitedeliteful

    She may not really give a fugg but I do like the fact that she openly and publicly is going against her husband's ignorant rant. She knows better than anyone in this world that her husband is an idiot. It seems like she is passively disagreeing with him by offering to go visit this school.

  • Mark mcharm

    She will be divorcing this idiot asap that is why she is defying him I know she goes like damn I am 49 and married to a 72-year-old man with false teeth.

    Both. SHOES.???????

  • P0shzZ0la

    And black people always running to white neighborhoods and leaving black countries because they can't stand to be around each other. I think black people can be the most flaky people in the world. Black Americans have had the best opportunities and threw it all away. Luckily, there are some waking-up. I have run into a few on this site. But for the most part....black people have a lot of growing up to do and accepting each other. We have to do better. A so-called black US president did nothing but yet you want a white president to be perfect and do everything....PATHETIC. The video below says it all....BWAHAHA

    Here's the result after black folks get off the boat and what they do to white countries just like what black Americans do to their own and white neighborhoods. Sorry....it is what it is. I'm not going to fuss about it...BYE

Its all hearsay. Unless I hear it from her mouth and not from a spokesperson,ion believe a werd of it. Whats her purpose for going? What,,, she's trying to ease tension that her husband created? Melania needs to stay in Washington,continue to wear her Loubitions and stand by her racist,line hubby side.#Be Best."mumbling" she prolly just finding out who LeBron James is.

  • cherrypie

  • Vonn

    donnie has a looong list of hoes...& melancholy is not at the top of it. I think the most physical contact they have is when donnie tries to hold her hand in public, and that doesn't always work out for him.

  • WhoKnew

    Bron Bron. DON'T DO IT!!!! These people are opportunist. It's a trick to try to make Dump look good by having his "dumb as a cup of ramen noodles" wife visit the school. She dumb as an empty bottle of water in the desert. I would not do a damned thing to help this orange popsicle. Even when his ass melts, I'm walking around that puddle of orange shyt. I'm telling you watch out for a trick.

  • MsSapphire9800

    She is ...." The Clean Up Woman"...I bet she agree with everything this man says...but in public she have to clean up his dirt.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I hope Lebron doesn't invite her to his school. This just seems like it would be a PR thing for her, a photo opp.

  • iWasteTime

    Meliania want BBD.
    Send Betsy ass to the public school. Show her how to do it!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Subtle matchy is really nice...

  • Faithz

    So what have that got to do with James saying Trump is trying to divide people of color with his attack on the players kneeling down, though.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I see a clean up on aisle 4. Lebron don't need Trump's wife to come make some public bs stroll just to clean up her husband's twitter mess. Stay home Mel.

  • the guest

    There is absolutely no way, and no one can convince me otherwise, that Trump's wife is intimate with him at all. I guarantee she doesn't even kiss him on the mouth.

    I wouldn't let the wife of my enemy send mail to my home let alone visit. They are a unit and share the same values. Keep away!

  • hottlanta

    Michèle is thé one whose husband never left her at the curb when getting out of the car.

  • Rahab

    Drumpf speaks like a pre-K student.

  • Michelle

    Everybody knows she hates that man. It was obvious before he even got elected. She had to be forced to move into the White House a year after he was there. She has a separate room in the White House, her and agent orange don’t even sleep in the same room. She snatches her hand away from him when he tried to hold it so I think it’s obvious she doesn’t like him in real life

  • hottlanta

    Please l was divided years ago when he kept black folks outta his building n the central park 5. I didnt just discover he was racist last week.

  • bella28498 .

    U keep thinking she hate her husband ????? I stand by my original statement and study the good cop bad cop strategy and u might understand the strategy. Trump isn’t doing anything to black ppl actually u don’t have a dog in the race so just live your life. None of what is going on have NOTHING to do with you.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    She’s a fly chick can’t take That from her. Real chic and classy

  • dontgetblocked

    Lebron hs disrespected the President repeatedly! He finally got told the phuck off. I LOVED IT!!

  • Michelle

    I didn’t say it wasn’t a strategy, obviously everything is a strategy. But it still doesn’t mean she likes him. I said what I said. I live my life everyday and don’t think 2 thoughts about nobody else but my family. It has nothing to do with you either so back tf down and shut tf up

  • Guest

    I love how she dresses but that is all.

  • BingBangBoom

    I'm saying tho.. Didn't he say he wouldn't be in the same room as President Trump? Ever?

  • Guest

    Lol. Me too.

  • JENNYJONES1

    EVEN IF HE DID HE'S DONE MORE FOR BLACK YOUTH THAN AGENT ORANGE WHO SOLD HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL AND PUTIN. AND MAYBE THE 'C' TRUMP PUT ON BLACK PEOPLE'S APPLICATIONS REALLY DIDN'T STAND FOR 'COLORED' AND IT WAS JUST A COINCIDENCE THEY WERE DENIED. SO YES LET'S BE REAL........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    I AGREE I WON'T LET HER VISIT EITHER BUT I THINK SHE HATES TRUMP'S ASS AS MUCH AS ANYONE ELSE BUT SHE'S TRAPPED B/C OF HER SON AND IS SHE EVEN A AMERICAN CITIZEN? HE'D MAKE SURE SHE DISAPPEARED IF SHE LEFT HIM OR TRIED TO. YOU SEE WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW SHE WAS M.I.A. WHEN SHE 'SUPPOSEDLY' HAD A MINOR SURGERY. DID SHE REALLY HAVE A SURGERY OR WAS SHE TIED UP IN THE WHITE HOUSE BASEMENT. HAVE YOU NOTICE HOW VOCAL SHE'S BEEN EVERY SINCE THEN. LOL!!!!............JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    NOPE HE TRIED THAT CRAP WITH MARLA AND FIGURED HE BETTER GO BACK TO THE FOREIGN BITCHES B/C THEY ARE EASIER TO CONTROL ESP IF YOU DON'T INVOLVE THEM IN YOUR BUSINESS AFFAIRS. LOL!!!.........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    YES SHE DOES AND SHE'S TRYING TO SABOTAGE, MUDDY THE WATERS SO THIS FOOL DOESN'T GET RE-ELECTED AND SHE CAN GO BACK TO HER OLD LIFE WERE SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO BE SEEN WITH HIM, FORCED TO HOLD HIS 'LITTLE' HAND AND BE IN THE SPOTLIGHT, JUST BE RICH & HAPPY.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Lmao!

  • JENNYJONES1

    Girl how many C's were written on your application? Check NAACP list of jobs Not to apply to because they discriminated against minorities. C's were written all over these applications. I hope your employer isn't on the list.

  • dontgetblocked

    She's married to the most powerful man in the world. I'm sure shes content.

  • dontgetblocked

    Why do people wish for the destruction of the Trump marriage but brag about the Obamas? Melania loves and supports her husband as she should.

  • dontgetblocked

    She extended an invitation. She did not go against her husband.

  • Kimocha

    WOW! That's crazy!!!

  • Vegas1989

    I just need to go through her closet. I know that she has my size shoes up in there. Them size 10 and 11 in leather.....LOL

  • Kimocha

    I was just asking because I don't know of any first ladies that have divorced any presidents in U.S. History... Whether during their term of presidency or after... Never heard of it.... (shrugs)

  • Kimocha

    Melania will be the first that I ever heard of to divorce a former president of the U.S..... IF she divorces him....

  • ImWoke

    But I’m sure he would appreciate a small donation of a million dollars toward his school

  • SoChlo

    Hey! My daughter is in Pre-K. I’m insulted!

  • Kimocha

    She did extend an invitation but it doesn't look like a united front. It surprised me.

  • Disgustd

    And El Cheeto's family had access to supposedly the best the US educational system has to offer..much like Dumbya Bush. LeBron is a product of what most black people get in public schools-indoctrination, not education. But money apparently cannot buy humanity, empathy or compassion and cannot turn a born sociopath/psychopath into a psychologically healthy person. As Okra said many years ago: Money doesn't change who you are, it only magnifies who you already were. She ain't neva lied about that.

  • Disgustd

    He's on code. Putting on a show for his adoring public. He can't do what Wilson did and host the premiere of The original Birth of a Nation at the white people's house (built by black people forced to) but he can symbolically do it with every twat he creates.

  • Disgustd

    You mean the most powerful mob boss. I wish people would call it what it is, Just another organized criminal network--just like the mafia and they operate just like them too..shaking down whole countries instead of just neighborhoods these days but same basic premise and tactics.
