The president's comments led many to take to Twitter to argue that James would be a much better choice for secretary of education than DeVos. By midday Thursday, there were 11,348 signatures, and the surge of signatures caused organizers to keep increasing their goal.
"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon".
Don Lemon responded: "Who's the real dummy?" But it can be seen as a new statement of discontent by critics of the Trump administration and DeVos, who has always been a critic of America's public schools and who once called them "a dead end". Six days after James opened his "I Promise" school in Akron, a public school aimed at educating underserved youth, Curry, along with his wife Ayesha, opened the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation Education Lab at Bushrod Recreation Center in Oakland, a few rooms away from the gym he refurbished in January.
The current secretary of education never attended a public school or state university and all four of her children were sent to private schools.
Michael Moore: Trump is the 'Last President of the United States'
Moore correctly predicted that Trump would win the White House by scoring the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Fahrenheit 11/9 is named after the date that Trump was officially announced as the victor of the presidential election.
"Unfortunately, Trump and his cronies chose Betsy DeVos for us and we are stuck with an uncaring Education Chief who has fought against teachers and has even expressed disdain for the very department she heads.at least until now", the petition reads.
James celebrated the opening of his "I Promise" public elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio late in July - which will serving around 300 at-risk children and their families - providing them with free lunch, textbooks, classes, tutoring, and free bicycles.
The U.S. president is a former reality show host and businessman whose companies filed for bankruptcy six times. Trump's school settled a lawsuit for $25 million after scamming students out of money and providing them nothing in return.
You can decide how far-fetched it seems: Education Secretary LeBron James.
