Ohio results and Trump-LeBron drama

Ohio, with 18 electoral votes, is another State that is a toss-up between the two candidates. Donald Trump had famously crossed swords with the State’s star NBA player LeBron James, after the latter called the US President “divisive.” 

In classic Trump fashion, he took to Twitter to express his displeasure. “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” Trump posted. “He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.”

Don Lemon is an American television journalist.
