Hillary Clinton talks disability reform in Orlando speech
WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton is stressing her support for people with disabilities.
At a campaign event Wednesday, Clinton pledged to “build an inclusive economy that welcomes people with disabilities.” She was speaking at the Frontline Outreach Family and Youth Center in Orlando, Florida.
Clinton promised to provide more job opportunities and to get rid of the sub-minimum wage for people with disabilities. She also promised to make colleges and universities more accessible and to provide more support for people with autism.
Clinton did not directly mention Republican opponent Donald Trump, though she did repeat her campaign mantra that “love trumps hate.”
Clinton’s campaign and her supporters have highlighted a video of Trump appearing to mock a disabled reporter, which has drawn strong reaction from voters in focus groups and other forums.
