The petition will apparently be sent to Mr. Trump after collecting its target number of signatures, which has increased to 13,000 as more people sign.

If you could pick from LeBron James or Betsy DeVos to be the nation's secretary of education and those were your candidates, whom would you pick?

Rebecca G., who created the petition, called the new Lakers star "an inspiration to kids all over the country" who "cares about America's youth and understands the power of public education in helping children meet their true potential".

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.

Trump tweeted on August 4: "Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon". I like Mike!' Trump tweeted last Friday.

If you could pick from two candidates to be nation's secretary of education and those were your candidates, whom would you pick?

Cutshaw was jailed on charges including drunken driving, speeding, and marijuana possession; based in part on her own statements. It's not that she allegedly blew through a stop sign at 60 miles an hour that's making headlines.


The petition calls for public support to help get James named as head of the nation's education, glossing over the enormous hypothetical that Trump would have to name him. Last year, James called the president "a bum" when Trump "uninvited" Curry and the Warriors to the White House if they were to win the National Basketball Association championship.

James recently opened his I Promise school, which will serve predominantly low-income students in Akron, Ohio.

Curry and James have stuck up for one another and spoken out about Trump over the years.

However, there were those that felt James is getting too much credit for his new public school because the majority of the costs will come from taxpayers.

'So glad the Dems are supporting Betsy Devos Charter School Vouchers now; wonder how many people are aware that cost of the LeBron James school will be passed on to the tax payers?' someone else added.
