National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry says that President TrumpDonald John TrumpOhio county finds hundreds of uncounted votes in already too-close-to-call special election Nunes suggested at private fundraiser that GOP majority is needed to protect Trump Ex-Bush spokesman: Trump shouldn't talk in his "loopy ways" to Mueller MORE's tweet attacking LeBron James' intelligence last week follows a "long-standing" pattern of racism.

"He's shown he cares about America's youth and understands the power of public education in helping children meet their true potential", the petition sayd about James.

DeVos, who has been USA secretary of education since 2017, was described in the document as "a scandal-ridden Republican donor who shows an inexcusable dislike for public education".

Referencing his new I Promise school in Akron, the petition lists James as the first candidate.

The NBA star personally donated millions through his LeBron James Family Foundation, worked to secure sponsorship, and will ultimately have a huge influence on the school program.

The petition has been signed by almost 8,500 people as of 6 a.m. Thursday.

Proving that you're never too old to rock n' roll, Tabano was even willing to recreate his pose in the photo for the episode. Decades later, the van has been found by none other than the stars of History Channel's hit show " American Pickers ".

"Betsy DeVos was hired without ever setting foot in a public school - and she's taken every opportunity to work against the interests of the children, teachers, and families she has pledged to serve", the petition says.

Trump jabbed James on Twitter on Saturday, calling the new Los Angeles Laker unintelligent after James told CNN's Don Lemon in an interview about his newly opened OH school that Trump uses sports to "divide" Americans. We certainly deserve better!' the petition reads.

'Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon.

Such a shift doesn't seem likely, though, especially given the testy relationship between President Trump and James, who will soon produce a Showtime documentary series.

'At least unlike Betsy DeVos, LeBron James supports education, ' Miranda Yaver hit back. "He did a lot, but taxpayers should know it's their investment, too".
