REALITY CHECK: Donald Trump And Mike Pence Would Do Nothing to Help Americans with Disabilities as President

WASHINGTON - October 04, 2016 -

“Donald Trump has actively antagonized and mocked Americans with disabilities on the campaign trail – something I find unconscionable as an educator. Hillary Clinton has dedicated her life to fighting for children with disabilities and Tim Kaine is cut from the same cloth. From her first job with the Children’s Defense Fund to her presidential campaign, where she has pledged to fulfill the promises of the Americans with Disability Act. As educators, we stand up for our most vulnerable people. It’s very clear who is fit to be President and Vice President.” - Jaim Foster, Elementary Educator, Arlington, VA
