President Trump shows daily, that his background is not in politics, but in construction. His mind is constantly processing ideas, situations, and programs in light of what the objectives are.
The left has gone hardcore, refusing to denounce ANTIFA and BLM, making excuses for looting and rioting, in the pursuit of allowing these group’s alleged pursuit of “social justice”. Simultaneously, these cities are pledging to ‘defunding the police,’ even though the basic logic tell you cities who do this will experence immediate spikes in crime and shootings.
The conflict between the President and these radical city mayors is over who will protect the American citizen, in these communities? Shouldn’t they expect to get the same protections as citizens living in Red states? President Trump appears to think so. On Wednesday he signed a memo ordering federal agencies to defund “anarchist jurisdictions” including New York City, Seattle, and Portland.
He is ordering the federal government to begin the process of defunding New York City and three other cities where officials allowed “lawless” protests and cut police budgets amid rising violent crime. He signed a five-page memo ordering all federal agencies to send reports to the White House Office of Management and Budget that detail funds that can be redirected.
The memo instructs White House budget director Russ Vought to issue guidance in 30 days from Wednesday “to the heads of agencies on restricting the eligibility of or otherwise disfavoring, to the maximum extent permitted by law, anarchist jurisdictions in the receipt of federal grants.”
The New York Post reported:
President Trump is ordering the federal government to begin the process of defunding New York City and three other cities where officials allowed “lawless” protests and cut police budgets amid rising violent crime, The Post can exclusively reveal.
Trump on Wednesday signed a five-page memo ordering all federal agencies to send reports to the White House Office of Management and Budget that detail funds that can be redirected.
New York City, Washington, DC, Seattle and Portland are initial targets as Trump makes “law and order” a centerpiece of his reelection campaign after months of unrest and violence following the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.
“My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones,” Trump says in the memo, which twice mentions New York Mayor Bill de Blasio by name.
New York is named because of a crime wave as officials cut police funds. The city had a 177 percent spike in shootings in July compared to last year. The City Council approved a budget in July that cuts $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion annual budget and eliminates $537 million in capital spending.
The memo says that “in New York City, city officials have allowed violence to spike.
Similar to the White Houses’ attempt to stop funding from going to “Sanctuary Cities”, we can expect the left to challenge any withholding of funds, for any reason, to end up in the courts. Unless education and immigration are fixed, the Divided States of America will continue to grow apart.
It’s up to us to stop the brainwashing, which will help the next generation still love the country, and in the end will help preserve our American way of life, which includes Law and Order.
