President Trump takes shot at LeBron in tweet

"We want every kid that walks through this school to be inspired", James told Lemon.

"For me, everything where I grew up was on top of the refrigerator", he explained.

James has been co-creating this school with the public school system for 10 years, and his passion for educating high-risk youth comes from an understanding of what it's like to grow up with financial need.
