(POLITICO) – Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said Wednesday that education has not been a main agenda item for President Donald Trump but that he's been supportive of her agency's work.
"Education clearly has not been at the top of his list of priorities to address directly, but he has been very supportive of all the work that we've done," DeVos said in an interview with Denver radio station KDMT.
"I have a great relationship with the president," she said. "And he has been very supportive of and encouraging of all of the initiatives that we've undertaken."

DeVos' relationship with Trump was thrust into the spotlight earlier this year after the controversy over proposed funding cuts for the Special Olympics. DeVos publicly defended the administration's proposal for days until Trump suddenly reversed course, declaring that he had "overridden my people."
