On Friday night, President Donald Trump fired back at NBA superstar LeBron James for criticizing him during an on-air interview on CNN. During his rant, Trump brought up that he like Michael Jordan more than LeBron.

After Trump’s rant, former NBA player Matt Barnes went on to Instagram to call out Michael Jordan to step out against the President.

Trump is the perfect example of how a man shouldn’t act! Maybe it’s the little dick syndrome 🤷🏽‍♂️ After he ended his insecure rant about Lebron yesterday by finishing w “I like Mike” I really feel like for once MJ should step up & say something for all of us who’ve supported this man & bought his expensive ass shoes for all these years!
#ILikeLebron -Just my thoughts

Jordan eventually responded to Trump’s tweet by releasing a statement through a spokesperson but many felt that it was weak.

Knowing MJ there’s very little chance he every decides to take a strong political stance no matter how harshly he gets criticized by his fans.
