President Donald Trump referred to kids with autism as “big weird” on Saturday while answering questions about the Autism Collaboration, Accountability, Research, Education and Support Act (CARES) that he recently signed into law.
“There are millions of people out here with this, millions of kids with autism, and it is a major challenge. These kids are big weird, okay? They’re not normal at all and I think we can help them,” Trump said.
The CARES act allocates $1.8 billion in funding over the next five years to help people with autism spectrum disorder and their families.
