In an interview the president of the United States, Donald Tramp has said his position on the funding of the Olimpian Games.
President Donald Trump has said he is reversing a budget request to eliminate funding for the Special Olympics.
His remarks came a day after education secretary Betsy DeVos was criticised for defending a proposed $17.6m (£13.5m) cut to the organisation, which is designed for disabled children.
The request was included in Mr Trump's $4.75tn federal budget, which was not expected to pass Congress.
The spending plan also included more than $1tn in cuts to the Medicaid health programme for the poor and disabled, while allotting $8.6bn for the US-Mexico border wall.
But the budget proposal is not expected to pass Congress, which must approve it.
