Well, that changed quick.

On his way to an event in Grand Rapids Michigan, President Trump stopped to talk to reporters before boarding Marine One to chit and chat as he is known to do. According to the A.P.


President Donald Trump says he is backing off a budget request to cut funding for the Special Olympics, after days of criticism.

Trump told reporters at the White House Thursday, “I’ve overridden my people for funding the Special Olympics.”

The administration had taken a beating over the past couple of days about the proposed cuts and Trumps Education Secretary, Betsy Devoss had taken the brunt of that criticism on Capitol Hill this week.

DeVoss is trying to navigate a 7 Billion dollar cut from her agency for the fiscal year 2020.
