Baltimore Mayor blasts POTUS…after receiving MILLIONS in HUD funding from Trump Administration

This blows the mayor’s narrative completely out of the water.

Over the course of the last few days, one city has absolutely dominated US headlines after a nasty tiff with President Trump took center stage.

That city is, of course, Baltimore – a locale that has come under criticism for decades due to their drug and crime issues.  Heck, even HBO chronicled the troubled city in The Wire, one of the most revered television shows in history that ran from 2002 to 2008.

Of course, now that President Trump has called attention to the issues surrounding the Maryland city, the “resistance” is out in full force, attempting to spin the President’s comments as “racist” or “bigoted” in some way.

The city’s mayor even got in on the action, making some of the most vitriolic comments on the matter to date.

Baltimore Mayor Bernard “Jack” Young said Monday that President Donald Trump should send federal assistance to the city instead of criticizing its conditions in “childish” tweets.

“If he really wants to, he needs to send us the federal assistance — not only to Baltimore, to cities around this country that are in the same situation that Baltimore is in — but he’s so interested in childish tweets,” Young told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day.”
Baltimore’s ambitious $889 million plan to transform a swath of East Baltimore got a boost Thursday when the city was awarded a $30 million federal grant for redevelopment that includes tearing down Perkins Homes public housing and moving residents to new affordable housing.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant is one of five being awarded to cities as part of the agency’s Choice Neighborhoods Initiative.

Baltimore’s grant will support the city’s PSO Transformation Plan, which seeks to revitalize the 75-year-old Perkins Homes, the site of the former Somerset public housing development and Old Town.

As the late, great Billie Mayes would say:  But wait!  There’s more!

Maryland housing authorities on Tuesday received more than $4.4 million in federal vouchers to house people with disabilities, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The $4,412,074 has been allocated to local housing authorities in Baltimore city and Howard, Mongtomery, Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Carroll counties, and other jurisdictions. The money will allow Maryland to provide permanent affordable housing to 454 people with disabilities, according to HUD.

The inanity of these political argument being so easily debunked leads us to only one conclusion:   Mayor Young has seized an opportunity to tussle with Trump in an effort to garner support from the “resistance” – nothing more.
