The NYTimes brings us up to date on petty, insecure asshole Hair Füror’s latest attempt to punish Democrats for not voting for him by defunding cities:
“President Trump has directed federal officials to find ways to cut funding to a string of cities controlled by Democrats, citing violence amid protests against systemic racism in policing, a move that threatens billions of dollars for many of the country’s largest urban hubs as the president makes the unrest a centerpiece of his re-election campaign.
“Mr. Trump laid out the directive in a memo, released Wednesday, to Russell T. Vought, the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, and Attorney General William P. Barr. It accuses state and local officials of abdicating their duties.
“‘Anarchy has recently beset some of our states and cities,’ Mr. Trump wrote in the memo, mentioning a few cities specifically: Portland, Ore.; Washington; Seattle; and the president’s birth city, New York. ‘My administration will not allow federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones.’”
TBotP(tC) tells us not to worry:
— THIS IS A TRIED AND TRUE TRUMP TACTIC, and he usually doesn’t follow through. And legally, he might not be able to do so. REMEMBER WHENhe said he was going to withhold funds from the University of California, Berkeley?
