3 Debate Questions

Mr. Trump, would you discipline one of your executives if they were regularly telling mean jokes about another employee's disabled child? Or, would that be too much "political correctness?" How do you, as a manager, draw the line between freedom of speech and fostering a safe, productive organization?

Secretary Clinton, in addition to Anastasia Somoza, who you have introduced us all to, tell us about 3 other disabled people in politics you admire and would turn to for guidance on disability matters. Which positions in your cabinet and administration would benefit from high-level appointments of people with disabilities?

For both candidates: What do you think is the most urgent disability issue right now, that you would focus on first and most intensively as President?
