Education Secretary Betsy De Vos was overruled by President Trump on the funding for the Special Olympics.

As the president was leaving for a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he announced his decision to the media:

President Trump responds to news that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was proposing a cut to Special Olympics funding:

“I just authorized funding of the Special Olympics. …

I have overridden my people, we’re funding the Special Olympics”

The president just recently met with a group of Down Syndrome teens on Down Syndrome Day.

His photos with them are priceless.

Ivanka Trump and Vice president Mike Pence joined President Trump to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day.

Today we celebrate the lives and achievements of Americans with Down Syndrome. @VP and I will always stand with these wonderful families, and together we will always stand for LIFE!

This was a great move by President Trump. The left is already claiming this was a planned moment but it really is our president’s big heart in action.
