“Trump plans to slash the main source of federal financing for disability and aging services” – Vox.com

This opinion piece, “I’m a disabled American. Trump’s policies will be a disaster for people like me,” contends:

“With the lives of millions of Americans with disabilities at stake — as well as those of people of color, Jews, Muslims, low-income persons, LGBTQ Americans, and members of other marginalized groups — we need all the silver lining we can find. The next four years will be difficult ones.”

The author is Ari Ne’eman, the president of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network who served as one of President Obama’s appointees to the National Council on Disability from 2010 to 2015.
