The I Promise School is the culmination of almost a decade of work by James' foundation, with its focus on educating children from challenging situations or backgrounds.
The current Commander-in-Chief took the time to tweet a dissing message about NBA basketball player LeBron James, 33, and CNN journalist Don Lemon, 52, on the night of August 3 after the two had an interview in which LeBron spoke his mind about Donald.
On Monday, James sat down for an interview to promote a new public school that his charitable foundation helped build.
'When you're part of sports, it brings so much camaraderie and so much fun.
Back in September, after Trump said Steph Curry wouldn't be welcome at the White House, LeBron came to his rival's defense, reminding the president that the Golden State Warriors star "had already said he ain't going" and "therefore ain't no invite".
The future NBA Hall of Famer responded, "I would never sit across from him".More news: Florida man receives national attention for failed 'In My Feelings' challenge video
"Kind of?" Lemon said, followed by a chuckle. Trump puts children in cages, ' his colleague Joseph Flynn wrote.
It was not the first time James publicly criticized the president.
"Who's the real dummy?"
"[Trump] kinda used sports to kinda divide us", James told Lemon.
James has been outspoken in his dislike for Trump in the past. Now, besides insulting yet another African-American athlete, Trump's trying to co-opt the sports bar debate about the greatest basketball player of all-time.
Tension between the basketball star and president has built up for some time now. Torrey Smith, a former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver who was among the first of that team's players to say they would not visit the White House after winning the Super Bowl this year, suggested race played a role in Trump's criticism.
These all speak louder than a President's Tweet. "#BeBest." James hasn't responded to Trump's tweet.
