He writes, "Hillary Clinton offered clear, specific, and timely policy proposals to expand the social safety net and civil rights of people with disabilities, while Trump made clear his intent to slash services and roll back legal protections. For the millions of Americans with disabilities who depend on Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act to access the health care and public services that mean basic survival, it is policy -- not personal insult -- that has brought terror and despair in the aftermath of Trump's victory."
- Trump plans to slash the main source of federal financing for disability and aging services.
- Trump plans to eliminate critical legal protections for disabled people in the health care system.
- Trump may be about to set back federal autism policy by at least a decade.

- Disability activists have faced down conservative attempts to roll back disability rights before -- and won.
- The Trump presidency will be a disaster -- but even a disaster presents certain opportunities.
