Trump Tells Voters in Suburbs They Will ‘No Longer be Bothered’ by Low-Income Housing
President Donald Trump told suburban voters that they will no longer be “bothered” by nearby “low income” housing because he rolled back an Obama-era anti-discrimination housing regulation.
…Your housing prices will go up based on the market, and crime will go down. I have rescinded the Obama-Biden AFFH Rule. Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 29, 2020
Trump was pounded on Twitter for his thinly-veiled racism.
Wildly, baldly, racist. Ignorant assumptions about "suburbs" that are stuck in 1978. And on top of it, "Suburban Lifestyle Dream" is the shittiest band name of all time. https://t.co/1ZbcPzh1Rv— Mark Huelsman (@MarkHuelsman) July 29, 2020
Translation: I am happy to inform all of the white people living their Suburban Lifestyle Dream that less people of color will be in your neighborhoods.— Ahmed Baba (@AhmedBaba_) July 29, 2020
This is what he has always meant by MAGA. It’s always been about a return to blatant white supremacy. https://t.co/BMtHxpOmLR
I'm betting that by day's end Trump will top this pathetically desperate and vile tweet.— Shelby Kent-Stewart ™ (@ShelbyKStewart) July 29, 2020
Let's not tell him he's discriminating against his base. pic.twitter.com/KcqUCxTUnJ
