White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said definitively that there is “zero chance” that Betsy Devos is not the next secretary of education during Wednesday’s White House press briefing.
A reporter asked Spicer about Sens. Murkowski (R-AK) and Collins (R-ME) both saying they intend to vote ‘no’ on DeVos, and whether the Trump administration is worried about her getting confirmed.
“Zero. I am 100% confident [DeVos] will be the next secretary of education. She’s an unbelievably qualified educator and advocate for students, teachers, parents,” Spicer told the reporter.
Spicer concluded by saying, “[DeVos] is someone who has been a tireless advocate over the last couple of decades, to really support reforms that benefit children, and they are going to be the real winners with her as secretary of education.”
