Strolling through a precarious political moment, Trump continues to expand cultural divisions, as he believes it will appeal to security and order-related voters, despite surveys that do not show broad confirmation of how they dealt with racial relations.
Trump stops racial tensions while distributing posters of questionable vans in the Twitter feed and using language and tropics that hurt the days of separatist politics and fear to alert those who splashed red paint on George Washington’s sculptures. ruined neighborhoods.
Some of the president’s political advisers are concerned about Trump’s actual health and economic crises facing the country, and alienating moderate voters who have evolved their views on race without regarding the Confederate monuments as “history.”
However, Trump insisted that the issue was a winning problem for him and refused to change the course.
“This is a war to save the Heritage, History and Greatness of our Country!” He wrote on Tuesday using the # MAGA2020 campaign tag.
Surveys have shown that Trump has largely disapproved of racial management, including the vast majority of voters. Sixty-four percent of women said in the New York Times / Siena poll last week that Trump did not approve of how he dealt with racial relations.
“The Change of Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren (all people!) That will cause the renaming of Fort Bragg, Fort Robert E. Lee and many other Soldiers (plus other bad things!) Will veto the Defense Authorization Act. Bill! ”Trump wrote.
Trump also denied Woodrow Wilson and John Wayne’s decisions to remove the names from the buildings and made a lot of effort to punish people who destroyed national monuments.
Black Life Matters
On Wednesday, President fired with a plan recently announced by authorities in New York to paint the phrase “The Black Life Issue” in front of the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. Words appeared for the second time in capital letters outside one of Trump’s houses; The mayor of Washington was written in large yellow letters on a street near the White House last month.
On Wednesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said work on the plan will begin in the coming days. The day before, the New York City Council approved a budget of $ 1 billion cuts to the city’s police department.
Trump, “BILLION DOLLARS cuts off the Police and @NYCMayor will draw a large, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, humiliating this luxurious Avenue,” Trump also posted on Twitter after Blasio also announced the plan’s schedule . “This will worsen New York’s Best,” he added.
Resisting the calls condemning the white nationalists, the President continued to call the word “Black Life Issue” as “a hate symbol” and suggested that the police officers could block the job: “Maybe the neutral and contemptuous BIG Police, by a mayor who hates them and disrespect them.” It won’t let it stick to New York’s largest street, instead spend the war crime on this money!
Targeting fair housing laws, showing the impact on the suburbs
The message came after the late night tweet on Tuesday, and the Obama era means federal fair housing law to combat discrimination and “have a devastating effect” on the suburbs. Trump is trying to stand up with suburban voters, who are key to his victory in 2016 but now show that polls have been losing badly – partly because of his split views about race.
In the message, Trump wrote in 2015 that he reviewed the Positively Evolving Fair Housing mission, which was considered a way to support the 1968 Fair Housing Act, which prohibits restrictions on selling or renting homes to race-based people. his father was accused of a federal civil rights lawsuit in 1973.
“At the request of many great Americans and others living in the suburbs, I am reviewing the AFFH housing arrangement, which had a devastating impact on the once-evolving Suburban areas.” He said his opponent Joe Biden wanted to make the suburbs “VERY BAD” election year.
“It’s not fair for homeowners,” Trump wrote, “I can finish!”
However, it is unclear how Trump’s message, captured in speeches surrounding race and equality, could help in its timing and content.
Fair Housing Law effect
Although the Fair Housing Act has been enacted for decades, many neighborhoods are still separated, and minority communities are less likely to have access to good schools, healthcare and public programs, which are essential to help citizens get rid of poverty. AFFH has been found necessary to further level the playing field for non-priority populations.
In the official definition of the rule, the Housing and Urban Development Department says that AFFH is designed to “take meaningful steps to overcome historical patterns of decomposition, promote fair housing selection and promote inclusive communities that are free from discrimination”.
The rule required communities receiving federal funding to provide assessment and analysis of fair housing practices; advocates of this rule say it is necessary to hold responsible for supporting the Fair Housing Act.
In the 1970s, Trump was accused of violating the Fair Housing Law while running his family’s real estate company. At that time, the Ministry of Justice claimed that Blacks who questioned the apartments in the Trump buildings were turned down, but were offered rent to White tenants.
The case was concluded after Trump tried to file a counter-claim.
The Trump administration said in 2018 that it delayed the implementation of the AFFH rule, which is part of its larger efforts to eliminate President Barack Obama’s legacy. At that time, HUD made the decision as part of efforts to reconsider the rules left over from previous management.
HUD Secretary Ben Carson suggested a change earlier this year that mayors and local officials know their community better than the federal government and are better positioned to make housing decisions, essentially eliminating AFFH. This was met with the harsh opposition of housing advocates, who said that the abolition of the rule would make housing less fair.
“This attack on the fair housing is part of the Trump administration’s ongoing efforts to eliminate the protection of civil rights and needs to be stopped,” said Lisa Rice, President and CEO of the National Fair Housing Alliance.
