“The Los Angeles Times noted that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed Trump was keeping a promise to the late wife of his friend Bob Wright.
Bob is the former president and CEO of NBC, and in 2005 — alongside his wife Suzanne — he co-founded the non-profit Autism Speaks. As the grandparents of a child with autism, raising funds for research and awareness is a cause close to the family.
Suzanne Wright is credited on the Autism Speaks websitewith creating the puzzle piece logo that is used worldwide. Bob’s wife of 48 years died in 2016, and according to Spicer, Trump promised her that he would illuminate the White House blue if he won the election.”
