President Trump defended his newly appointed Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Tuesday, saying she went through an "unfair trial" before being appointed.
DeVos was the first Cabinet appointee to require a tiebreaker vote in the Senate from the vice president. Two Republican Senators and all Democratic Senators voted against her confirmation, which drew days of protests.
Trump made the remarks at a "parent-teacher conference listening session" with DeVos.
Trump also called DeVos' tumultuous appointment an "interesting moment."
