White House Goes Blue For Autism Awareness

The White House will briefly become the ``blue house'' on Sunday to mark World Autism Awareness Day.

The White House says President Trump is keeping a promise to the late wife of his friend Bob Wright he would illuminate the White House in blue if he won the election. Bob Wright and his wife, Suzanne, founded the advocacy group Autism Speaks in 2005. The organization uses the color blue in its logo.

Suzanne Wright died last year.A spokesman says it's in honor of the Wrights the White House on Sunday will help draw attention to a ``great cause.''
