On Tuesday, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos eliminated $18 million in funds from the Special Olympics as well as a 26 percent-cut in special education programs in schools across the county.

In response to Keith's question, Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh not only refused to disavow the chants, but then took the opportunity to attack the entire Democratic Party for being aligned with "socialism."
