Rather than bitching 'because Trump' people should be saying how can we improve this and make it even better, thank you Trump.




You're delusional, you think people all people want to live like you do, I hate to break it to you but no.. You are very wrong.

Sounds like a slick time to be having a land value property buyup scheme going in a ghetto place.



aka gentrification.

if trump wanted to rebuild communities, hed involve communities, not big Corp who bid the highest to rebuild as they see fit.
can't legally evict them, make it legal to evict them...





Kushner's family already owned real estate on the Jersey Shore, but spent an extra $13.15 million in Long Branch after the area was deemed an opportunity zone by the Treasury Department in April according to Bloomberg News. The Trump Organization was already planning a hotel redevelopment in Greenville, Mississippi, with a partner, but that project is in an area that was declared an opportunity zone in April and could now be eligible for the tax break.....


...Kushner also has existing properties in two Maryland opportunity zones, while the Trump Organization owns a New Jersey golf course inside another. Kushner's family company and the Trump Organization did not respond to requests for comment



You would complain no matter what he did. Pray tell, how would he have done this to better "involve communities" genius boy?



well let's call it coincidence that the opportunity zones are coincidentally in and around where trump and his cronies have had projects planned....

cant make this snip up...

swallow it if you want... swallow it you will

Speaking to the CEOs, Trump said he was working with friends and former business partners Steve Roth, of Vornado Realty Trust, and Richard LeFrak, CEO of LeFrak real estate, on infrastructure plans.
"Two friends of mine who are very good builders, they’re great builders," he said. "And, they know how to get things done, they know how to cut red tape, then we’re going to give them the advantage of having what we have."



leFrak

infrastructure council consisting of 2 billionaires... which said council 'doesnt exist' after a lawsuit in 2017... odd that 2 billionaires are 'rebuilding communities' and working for the government under a branch that doesnt exist.


.......

you can search for the Kushner Co. and look for their $1.8b purchase of a skyscraper oddly addressed on 666 5th ave, which ultimately put them in a $1.1bl deficit by 2015, which is now being leased by a Canadian real estate firm and investing $700mil for 'renovations' ...

(possibly opposite of Huawei CFO's real estate competitor as she is said to have real estate in Canada)** I wouldnt be surprised if I searched enough...

.... you can also search for the Kushner Co. investments right before the long branch zone was named an 'opportunity zone' to the tune of $13mil ... and it goes like this for ALL THOSE NEWLY DECLARED "OPPORTUNITY ZONES"


go on... move the goal post.

you're all being played....

The problem is that a majority of citizens in this country don't want him to keep most of his promises.

Also, what about that promise that Mexico would pay for his useless wall? Who is he demanding pay, right now, while threatening to shut down the government? The answer is us. Taxpaying citizens. More of us disapprove of the wall than otherwise.

Trump improves poor areas = gentrification

Trump proposes more ghettos = racist

Folks who view things this way = TDS

Cant have it both ways as it makes ones viewpoints basically null to clear thinking people.

The excuse of gentrification is but a sock puppet covering the fear that Trumps E. O. might very well be successful and make large inroads on a formerly taken for granted and counted upon voting block that is virtually enslaved by democrat party policy.

If that be the case then who would be guilty of racial policies?

The conclusion one gets is many want "feel good" steps that effect no real change in the political landscape nor individuals lives due political expediency rather than sound policy.

I've read the executive order in its entirety --

Executive Order on Establishing the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council

-- and I'm not especially optimistic or encouraged. Mostly because there is absolutely nothing in there about actually helping the people of the community. There's plenty in there for developers and other investors, but nothing for the residents. Therefore nothing to prevent gentrification and the displacement of the people who call these areas "home." The devil's in the details. At this point, there is nothing to prevent this becoming just another piggy bank for the rich at the expense of the people.

If Trump really wants to help the average Joe and Jane, then he needs to add a mission statement to that effect and invest more in the people of those communities. The thing is, Trump knows that already. If he wanted to do so, he would have.

Serious question for anyone and everyone -- for or against Trump and his EO: What would an effective and practical revitalization plan look like? Can anyone think of a real life example of a community that was revitalized without displacing the people of the community? One that genuinely benefited the residents of the community?

well the red flag is in the first section of the EO



This order establishes a White House Council to carry out my Administration’s plan to encourage public and private investment in urban and economically distressed areas, including qualified opportunity zones




Days before his January 2017 inauguration, President Trump announced that New York City real estate developers Richard LeFrak and Steve Roth would head a new “infrastructure council.” The body would advise the president on how to rebuild America’s moribund roads, bridges, broadband networks, veterans hospitals and more. It was among Trump’s major domestic policy initiatives, a pledge to invest in the roots of the homeland.

But by October 2017, the White House took the official position that the infrastructure council never actually existed.



I'm not a fan of the length of this investigation, but go Muller. leave no stone unturned! take all the time you need!

we're done with the pornstar thing...

now let's see what the Russian operative shared with you in the investigation. ..

Don Jr. is eerily quiet lately... not a peep.

While the EO may sound good in theory, it seems like all it does is promote gentrification in low income neighborhoods. Something that has been historically bad for the people currently living in those neighborhoods.

Mueller is one of the dirtiest critters in DC. He's part of the problem, not the solution.

So what would a quality revitalization program look like in your opinion?

What?? Need a dose of common sense here. The "communities" don't have money to rebuild themselves. If they did they already would. The people living there also obviously aren't able to keep it going, hence the awful state of disrepair.

You need people with money to invest.

if it was a question of the lesser of two evils in the election cycle with trump and Hillary, this is the same exact context.
I'm ok with the Muller investigation now, albeit Muller is no more than a snitch devil's advocate, but let's see what other lies were sold to over 50% of the country shall we?


a good revitalization program definitely doesnt start with billionaire real estate moguls appointed in the government choosing prime real estate locations to "revitalize ".

fixing local neighborhoods should be at the state level.
not by Kushner Co. and Canadian real estate agencies

Ooohh unfettered development. I live in a place like that. All those small rural areas are going to just love their new high-rises and townhouses they won't be able to afford, that'll be jampacked as tightly as possible on every block, and built as cheaply as possible, in the place that used to be their home.

It'll be just like the trump towers in new York and Florida but america wide baby.

Locally gentrification has saved he town only the low life eaters aren't happy because it's been cleaned up and there's more police. The people that have lived there a long time are happy because it's cleaner and safer. Homelessness has went away because there's housing for all.

State and local governments must be part of the process -- obviously. But the Feds have a place in the process too. Especially since Federal regs and policies have contributed to the problems in a big way.

If all you've got is trash talk because Trump, okay. But that doesn't get the job done. We still have problems to solve. We need solutions. If this isn't the best plan, what is? If we shouldn't support this plan, what plan should we adopt?

Gentrification does not help the people living in these communities. All it does is price them out of the area they were already living in.

Give them more. That's how the democrats do it. They don't let these people help themselves, they keep giving and giving because it creates dependency which is the only reason they win anything.
