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."

Trump did not take questions from the press at the conference.
