Governor Kasich reacts to tweet about Lebron

Columbus -  Ohio Governor John Kasich lost no time in reacting to the President's controversial tweet about Lebron James.

In an email to media outlets Saturday, the governor pointed to James' hard-earned success, and praised the recent opening of a school by James for under-privileged children.

Kasich said "Say what you will about LeBron James but there are a couple things that are undeniable about him.

The one that I believe is the most important to him isn't the championships, it's what his hard-earned success has allowed him to give back to those in need."

Governor Kasich went on to ask:

"What exactly about these kinds of insulting and insensitive statements is making America great again?

We can do better. We must do better."
