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.
James, who has been critical of Trump in the past, said during the interview that Trump was using sports to sow divisions in the US. "It's always been something that brings someone together".
Trump hit back in a tweet on Friday night in which he mocked James.
The US President has come under fire for attacking James' intelligence and suggesting that Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan is a better basketballer.
"I support LJ", Jordan, now the owner of the NBA's Charlotte Hornets, said in a statement released through his publicist. "He's doing an unbelievable job for his community", Jordan said through a spokeswoman. It's clear people have LeBron James' back - even Melania Trump defied her husband to express her support for the would-be subject of his bully tweets.
Trump's wife First Lady Melania Trump, however, doesn't seem to be on the same page about James.
Following the airing of the interview, the President insulted James and interviewer Don Lemon in a series of tweets. She noted that the first lady's platform, centered around the "Be Best" initiative, includes "visiting organizations, hospitals and schools".
Don Lemon responded by saying, "Who's the real dummy?"
She said Mrs Trump wanted "to have an open dialogue about issues facing children".
Mr Trump has repeatedly and strongly criticised the NFL in particular for not punishing players who kneel during the national anthem in a form of protest.
"Going to White House was a great honour until you showed up!"
LeBron doesn't appear to be taking the bait from the president.
On a separate airing of "CNN Tonight", Lemon said that Trump's presidency "can be defined by lies".
