US President Donald Trump verbally went at players in North America's two biggest leagues, and those athletes are fighting back.

Trump tweeted his reaction to Steph Curry deciding not to go to the White House, a response that escalated when LeBron James stepped in and defended Curry.

Earlier, Trump lashed out at NFL players who don't stand up for the national anthem.

He later made his feelings known on Twitter.

The sports world didn't take Trump's fiery rhetoric sitting down.
