1600 Pennsylvania Avenue turned blue for a great reason yesterday; to highlight autism awareness.
In a statement honoring World Autism Awareness Day yesterday, President Trump called on Americans to learn more about the signs of autism so that the condition can be diagnosed early. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said lighting up the White House blue honors a campaign promise he made to the founders of the advocacy group Autism Speaks.
Trump told Bob Wright and his late wife Suzanne that if he won the election, he would turn the White House blue.
This is Autism Awareness month. To find out more about the condition that affects about one in 68 kids, visit Autism Speaks.
