Stephen Curry: Donald Trump's LeBron James Tweet Racist

Melania Trump She paired her look with heavy makeup

One of LeBron James's biggest rivals has come to his defense after President Trump questioned the Los Angeles Lakers star's intelligence in a tweet last week. He's shown he cares about America's youth and understands the power of public education in helping children meet their true potential.

Created by Rebecca G. of The Care2 Community project, the petition was launched a week after James opened a new elementary facility in OH called "I Promise School" for at-risk youngsters from under-privileged backgrounds.

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.

'The second candidate is Betsy DeVos, a scandal-ridden Republican donor who shows an inexcusable dislike for public education, wants to gut protections for women and minorities, and has advocated for teachers to be armed in schools'.

Bleacher Report recently noted that his school could eventually cost taxpayers about $8 million per year.

Kawhi Leonard finally breaks silence with Spurs goodbye
THANK YOU to every one of my teammates I've played with over my seven years in the National Basketball Association . DeRozan, a lifelong Raptor, was dealt to the Spurs in July as part of a package for the disgruntled Leonard.

The petition has more than 5,000 supporters and is nearing its goal of 6,000 as of Wednesday afternoon.

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 comes nearly a week after President Trump insulted James' intelligence on Twitter following the athlete's interview with Don Lemon about his new public school. We certainly deserve better!

The Golden State Warrior, who has a contract with Under Armor through 2024, made the remark shortly after the CEO of Under Armour, Kevin Plank, called Trump an "asset" to the country in an interview with CNBC.

Not everyone was applauding James educational endeavors. "He did a lot, but taxpayers should know it's their investment, too".
