Supporters of Lebron James are taking a swipe at President Trump with a new petition drive.
Thousands of people have signed a petition which calls for James to replace current Education Secretary Betsy Devos.
The petition comes in response to a tweet by Mr. Trump last week where he questioned James' intelligence.
